Yesterday my son of eight had his first competition in Yoseikan stick fight. He never participated in a competition before, so he was understandably quite nervous. He already started Karate last year and was asked to join the Yoseikan training. He has autism and a Budo sport, like Yosaikan, helps him to feel confended, get faith in himself and gives structure and learns him to be respected and to respect others.
