Support for Instructors
I realise as an instructor you are very comfortable teaching and explaining the amazing benefits of Martial ARTS, but may be slightly unsure how to teach and engage with a person with a disability.
Your attitude can make a big difference. One of the most difficult barriers that those of us with a disability face is the attitudes and perceptions of other people that are usually based on ignorance and fear.
Most of the time, they are just misconceptions, which result in thoughtless comments by otherwise, well-meaning people. In either case, they form an obstacle to acceptance and full participation in society for people with disabilities.
