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
Stability                   
Upper body strength
OPPORTUNITIES.               THREATS
Perceived vulnerability      Lower down
Striking a metal chair.        Perceived speed
Lower down
Enhanced vision at height
Speed of chair
