Martial Arts as a method for improved behaviour
The purpose of this individualised program would be to utilise martial arts, fitness and accreditation's as a tool for improved emotional, behavioural and social change.
By using martial arts as a positive social agent we can develop positive character traits to assist young people to become better citizens and more successful adults. We aim to target executive functions such as impulsivity and risky behavior coupled with assisting in the development of moral foundations such as a sense of fair play, acceptance of achievement and fundamentals of societal values through hard work, competitiveness and personal change.
Martial Arts has a rich history of teaching teamwork, obedience and authority. By participating in sports under these conditions ‘at-risk’, ‘disaffected’ and ‘disengaged’ young people can learn to differentiate between good and bad behaviour. Individualised programs are planned at levels which allow full social inclusion as well as promoting participant engagement to match ability.
