Mar­tial arts with a mes­sage

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

BEL­MONT’S MMA 24/7 held a hol­i­day clinic at Bel­mont Oa­sis for 75 chil­dren so they could get a taste of mar­tial arts.

Oper­a­tions man­ager Lance Kin­naird said the pur­pose of the clinic was to teach kids tech­niques to keep them safe.

“They learnt about stranger aware­ness and anti-bul­ly­ing strate­gies,” he said.

“The drills and ex­er­cises were taught to them in a fun and en­gag­ing way.”

He said that learn­ing mar­tial arts could build chil­dren’s self con­fi­dence and en­cour­aged phys­i­cal ac­tively among chil­dren.
