MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. – It’s a sport that many try, and few stick with but lately the interest in martial arts has skyrocketed across the country.
Maybe it’s the concussions from contact sports that have piqued parent’s interest in getting their kids into karate or it could simply be a confidence-builder.
“In this society, it helps our kids,” said Debbie Reese, owner of Palmetto Martial Arts. “The kids who are confident that know what to do, are going to be less picked on.”
Reese’s studio has taught kids martial arts for nearly a decade. She says the restraint, coordination, and respect that’s demanded in martial arts helps the athletes carry these skills into other walks of life. Watch the video above to see the kids in action.
