Schoolteachers were asked to rate the students on impulsiveness, resistance to rules, self-concept and inappropriate behavior. After three months of training, the students within the treatment group had improved their behavior in class and... the teachers rated the martial arts students as less impulsive and less aggressive towards other colleagues.
