I received a kind email from Carolyn and she asked the following question:
"What if the fear of injury...isn't your own?"
I ask because... I've seen students leave martial arts because their parents don't want them to start sparring, or get hurt in some other way. More tragically, these students are usually girls.Watching someone be forced away from something they enjoy because of someone else's concerns breaks my heart.
Thanks again for your email and question!
