Do any academies make an extra effort to reach out and try to make a difference in the lives of people in their community?
The poor? The mentally ill? The addicts? The outsiders? Those who have no family?
I'm not preaching to anyone and I understand that the logistics and costs of running a martial arts school can be time consuming and expensive. But martial arts can give outsiders a place where they feel they belong. Does anyone feel that they make a difference to the outsiders? Could you do more to help others through training and teaching martial arts?
