Will my child learn to be aggressive?
Absolutely not! The martial arts is self-defense, not self-offense. They learn to
respect the skills they develop while training at our school. We teach our students
to act with confidence, maintain good self-control and self-discipline in order to
maintain the courtesy and integrity of our art.
