Physical Condition : The physical activities of the Master’s Academy classes include stretching, physical-skill drills, katas (forms), and light-touch sparring. Some of these activities require vigorous exercise. Each student should seek approval from their doctor for the type and level of physical activity required.

Special Needs
The Master’s Academy classes include stretching, physical-skill drills, katas (forms), and light-touch sparring in a group setting; these activities require vigorous exercise, memorization, and controlled behavior. In addition, students are expected to memorize material related to the training and Bible verses.

If a student has special needs that may hinder them from participating in these activities, they should discuss concerns with their doctor first. With a doctor’s consent to participate in the activity, please discuss physical, learning, or behavioral concerns with lead instructor, Dave Pearson.

He has been able to adapt the classes for many types of special needs over the years. Dave Pearson is an experienced teacher who is gifted with children. He expects good sportsmanship and discipline to be displayed in and out of class and has successfully taught students who have had difficulties with disciplined behavior in other environments. Please discuss any special needs with Dave.

If necessary, a student may try one class free to see if it can be adapted for their needs or whether the student may be more suitable for private lessons.
