Martial arts sometimes get a bad rap. People often falsely associate it solely with Hollywood kicks and punches, but fail to realize that the main thing martial arts teach is life skills. While self-defense is one aspect, martial arts goes far beyond that. Not only does it help develop self-confidence and self-esteem, it also builds a sense of respect for others and encourages non-violent conflict resolution! Martial arts teach socialization skills to diffuse tense situations, rather than actively engage in them.

"My daughter started going to RiSu through the Bristol Parks Department 4 week class. She enjoyed the class so much that after the parks department classes were completed she wanted to continue with the program. The classes teach so much more than martial arts. They teach the kids responsibility, accountability and to be the best version of yourself. These are skills they will have for the rest of their lives and it is helping to lay down the foundation to become responsible and productive adults. The skills taught in this school are shown in the older students who are great role models for the younger ones. I have nothing but positive things to say about the teachers and the program. Most importantly my child loves being a part of the RiSu family." - F.R.
