Learning any martial art is a good step for self defense.Now the younger generation people are learning different forms of martial art.Learning it create lot of confidence in us and it is useful in some urgent situation.Now i am learning Karate from a trainer.

That is a good idea to teach young ones martial ats not because of theobviuos reasons of self defence which is absolutely necessary in times liek these but because of the kind of discipline it also teaches.Martial arts also teaches that one should resort to violence as a last resort so it will help young ones to be able to asssess a situation and decide how to approach it. And this level of self control si what many young ones need in this day and age.Mind you I wish I knew martial arts too and at the level that I see them execute on TV

My dad used to teach us, me and my siblings, Judo Karate when we were still young. My father is a Judo Karate instructor/trainer. I did not develop much interest in it though. I am planning to enroll my son in a Taekwondo class and see if he shows any interest, then we'll start from there.
