About Hastings National Karate

This is a sample narrative. Two to three paragraphs will be best here to use words to capture audiences that spend time reading a lot of text on websites. Some users will find this the most useful section of the website, so be sure not to scrimp on quality text content.

Other users prefer to look at pictures and will get the most value from our banner images and bullet points. This text is not necessarily for them. Each of these narrative blocks will serve a unique purpose to provide in-depth descriptions of the programs or services that National Karate provides.

Be sure to include enough paragraph breaks so that readers do not become overwhelmed. Even an avid reader will become overwhelmed with small font and long paragraphs. It is also a good reminder to keep sentences short and sweet—not too many commas! The more concise the writing is, the more likely the reader will be to continue reading.

Several studies point to the effectiveness of traditional martial arts in reducing aggression. Zivin et al (2001) for example paired 60 middle-school boys on problematic behavior profiles in a treatment group and a waiting list control group. The treatment group participated in school-linked training in traditional martial arts. 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.
Lakes et al (2004) argue that these benefits are a consequence of enhanced self-regulation – historically known in martial arts as self-control – developing will and discipline.
