KARATE HELPING THE KIDS

More than 40 kids from the Warren City Schools who are currently in the K-8 grade are being put through karate lessons under the guidance of Sensei Sean Gordon of the American Martial Arts on East Market Street under the auspices of the Warren Police Athletic League with help from the city’s Weed and Seed program, who are sponsoring the event.

According to the co-coordinator of the Weed and Seed program at Warren City Tina Milner, these kids are being given the opportunity to interact in a sport that they would not have been able to try otherwise and this is a very proud moment for all those involved with the Weed and Seed program.

Sean Gordon, who is heading the program, added that the kids are learning self-discipline, self-confidence as well as self-esteem thanks to the program and at the moment, they are working on how to defend themselves if someone grabbed hold of them. The leaders of the program added that the local kids get plenty of opportunity to participate in programs such as baseball, soccer and basketball but the Police Athletic League wanted the kids to branch out in some non-traditional manner and there is nothing better in that respect than karate.

This would also help the kids who do not come from the wealthiest of families to focus on their classroom activities and according to Tina Milner, they took this opportunity to help the kids suffering from ADHD to improve their grades in class and sought the aid of the local police department who readily agreed to take up the program.

A recent study also showed that the martial arts forms taekwondo and karate helped people who suffer from ADHD and that was one of the main reasons for choosing the martial arts form for the program and Sensei Gordon is also happy in being able to help these kids.
