We have been forced to make some alterations to the AFS program. We no longer have access to the floor mats due to the kids wrestling class being placed on the same night and time. No problem. This is a class all about adaption, so we will adapt.
A person can adapt his fighting style to suit a particular situation by drawing from other styles. It is also true that a teacher can adapt his instruction by drawing from other instructing methods. Since it is impractical and indeed unsafe to practice throws, falls and ground work without a floor mat, we will be working primarily on stand-up techniques by utilizing self defense and step sparing methods. I will also spend more time working on the more advanced TKD kicks. The sword will continue to be part of the class.
If you have any questions, please post them. The class is still on Monday nights from 6:30 to 7:30 and is open to all students 16 years and up.
