A Curriculum for those who use Wheelchairs and Walkers
In many martial arts there is a fair amount of emphasis on the student punching and kicking correctly as well as
minimizing the injuries when the student is kicked or punched. There is certainly a lot to be said for physical security.
One can think of a martial school as a bank which loans courage, but a bank with extended responsibilities.
"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on
the moon and returning him safely to the earth." President John Kennedy - section IX of a speech titled
'Special Message to the Congress on Urgent National Needs' delivered to a joint session May 25, 1961. And then 
"We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are
hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills ..." from a speech by
President John Kennedy at Rice University in Houston Texas on September 12 1962.
One way, perhaps the only way, one can verify that a martial art is worth studying and teaching is how well it serves
not just people in the central areas of the mythical bell curve but also people in the remote tails of the population.
