This past year, farm boy and daddy have been following from the sidelines a mixed martial art form to see if it was right for them. Many teach the new age meditations and beliefs, which would not be right for us- so careful consideration was needed.

The goal of a good martial arts group is not violence and aggression, it is self control and discipline. These boys are here to receive instruction that teaches them to respect, to control, and to use as little force as possible to resolve a situation. Students must yield respect to those who have more experience that they do, must dress appropriately and respectfully, must control their actions.
