Youth Development through Martial Arts: Selected Good Practices

Youth Development through Martial Arts: Selected Good PracticesThis report provides a review of a selection of good practices from martial arts on youth development and youth empowerment, evaluated through a rigorous academic method to determine their effectiveness and impact. The companion volume Youth Development through Martial Arts: an Evaluation Framework for Youth Activities provides additional detail on the evaluation method and how it was developed. The good practices presented in this report have been selected through a systematic approach reviewing the practices of several existing martial arts-based youth programmes that contribute to positive youth development and youth empowerment in diverse parts of the world. While the field evidence and good practices collected in this report are largely anecdotal, the nature of the programmes, the enthusiasm of the youth involved and the personal stories of positive life transformations are particularly compelling.
