"Martial Arts to me is more than just kicking and punching, that's what people see all the time and in movies. The true value of the martial arts is the positive character that can be instilled in a person through self-discipine, hard-work, focus, humility and spirit. These are the just some of the positive benefits that will stay with you once you leave the training hall and can last you a life time. How then can you put monetary value in these things, Martial Arts practice truly is priceless"
