Wheelchair training 1

The younger ones enjoyed it and one of them has a friend who is in a wheelchair so may come along. This was partly theoretical today including why we do martial arts, why someone with a disability may do – and continue to do martial arts. A brief SWOT diagram emerged. We collated as follows:

STRENGTHS                   WEAKNESSES 

Sitting down.                     No use of legs

Lower down.                     Mobility

Less tiring.                         chair


Upper body strength


Perceived vulnerability      Lower down

Striking a metal chair.        Perceived speed

Lower down

Enhanced vision at height

Speed of chair
