It may have already been mentioned, but I would like to get it of my chest as i have recenly been at the receiving end of such an issue. Martial art teachers are required to have insurance against injury to a student or more than one student etc. and to be, or have on hand a trained certified first-aid person. If a teacher is approached by a disabled person regardless of the disability I would imagine the alarm bells would ring for that teacher “alert my insurance might not pay out”. Does the insurance policy cover a disabled person? Does the teacher look at how his/her martial is performed and come to the conclusion that’s its not possible? In this growing world of nasty bullies and hooligans who think nothing of beating up a person regardless of age in a wheelchair, or have one leg, or one arm, or are blind or deaf, sorry if I’ve missed anyone one out, should these people be helped in defending themselves in such situations, if not many teachers are prepared to teach these people how are they ever to walk amongst the considered normal people and feel confident and safe. Okay the imperfect of us will not be able to do the technique as well as a normal student, but I am sure armed with a few tricks or modified technique could surly help. I would love to hear the thoughts from genuine people on the subject and please try to remember the disabled have feelings they are just packaged a little differently.
