At MAS Martial Arts the Emphasis is always on the Art, Self-Defense, Physical conditioning and Life skills, never on Violence
Many parents are hesitant to enroll a junior or teen on a martial arts class due to fear that it will promote violence, or become a bully merely because he knows some basic martial arts moves. And you certainly don’t want him starting fights just because he thinks he can win.
MAS Teaches Martial Arts appropriately, MAS martial arts is not about promoting violence. Instead the practice of martial arts is about learning self-discipline, self-defense, self-control, respect, life skills lessons.
A true martial artist will always try to avoid unnecessary conflict. But that’s not to say martial artists don’t ever fight—they reserve fights for causes they believe in.
Studies have found that juniors and teens that participate in martial arts don’t become any more aggressive than those who are involved in team sports.7 They may (or may not) show more externalizing behavior—such as aggression, bullying and conduct issues—than teens involved in other individual sports.
