There are so many different types of martial arts but they all have one thing in common – people love them. And why not? Martial arts teach focus, self-control and the ability to self-defend; they boost confidence and
provide a productive way to release energy. They are also a lot of fun to watch.
Each martial ar ts discipline has its own techniques and objectives, so choosing the right one for you (and your kids) can be a challenge. For this reason, we’ve brought together four local experts, all of whom teach classes for children and adults in DB, to provide the lowdown on three of the most popular forms of martial ar t – judo, ju-jitsu and taekwondo.
Meet Cedric Sum, Co-Founder of Daruma Judo Club; Paul and Michelle Jones, Co-Founders of Kaisei Ryu Ju-Jitsu; and Billy Woo, TaeKwon Master at Cheung Do Kwan.
