Martial Arts from a Wheelchair
Posted: March 20, 2011
During the course of my martial arts training, I have come across quite a few individuals, that are disabled in some way. Some were confined to wheelchairs, and others had some other physical limitations. In all of these cases, these individuals enjoyed the same benefits as everyone else who practices martial arts.
Some of these individuals even became instructors.
We at Elite Martial Arts believe that everyone needs to be able to defend themselves, and everyone needs to stay in shape. The martial arts provides a vehicle to achieve both of these objectives. Additionally, training in the martial arts helped all of these individuals by helping them focus on what they could accomplish, and helping them to achieve their goals.
The video below is not about martial arts as much as it is about the fighting spirit of a person in a wheelchair, and his courage, and his ability to make a difference.
