This month we are looking at wheelchair self defense and training. We have some great training videos from students that use wheelchairs that have cerebral palsy and some from students with spinal chord injuries. There is a huge difference in how they train and both need to be appreciated.

We need your help. Please sign your school up for the Million Kick Campaign – this is an adaptable fundraiser that can focus on what your school does best..kicks, punches, forms, breaking, take downs etc. Congratulations to Arlington Tae Kwon Do in Arlington, VA. They are hosting their event on May 30th! Please support them if you are in the area.

For the second year, I have been invited back to teach adaptive martial arts at a local high school. A dozen very motivated students with a wide range of abilities are joining me this  semester as we explore all that the martial arts has to offer for them. If you teach a public school program, please contact me to share ideas! AdaptiveMartialArtsED@gmail.com

Yours in Adaptive Training,  Kathleen Maxey-Scarcello
