Adaptive Martial Arts Empowers Those with Disabilities

Phillip

Applied to modern day positive growth the Willow Foundation for Adaptive Martial Arts teaches a self-defense class at the Abington YMCA for people with disabilities. Kenn Perry, black belt, who contracted polio at age 3, leads the class.
