"I look at it in two ways: one, what I talk to parents, and two, what I talk about people that I mentor. To the parents, I say it straight up: we will teach your kid self-defense, and we teach age specific and school appropriate. We also give them tips on how to avoid bullies etc., like a lot of clubs do. As I said to the parent, what we're going to give to your kid is more valuable than just being able to defend themselves.
If they're in a fight - initially, we're going to teach them how not to get into a fight. We're going to teach them environmental awareness, we're going to teach them verbal skills, we've got some fantastic instructors, who work with the young kids, and they're just guns, but the message they deliver is not just about punching and kicking, there are life skills there." - Paul Veldman, Kando Martial Arts
