    7 Benefits of Azad's Martial Arts Program for Children!

    #4 Kindness

At Azad’s students learn to start and end every move with thoughtfulness and kindness toward their partners in class. Each physical activity is carefully balanced with mental lessons to balance the mind, and spirit even during a hand to hand combat. For instance, if during a hand-to-hand self-defense routine or sparring a skillful student overpowers another, he/she also learns to gage their next move to help their ....
