Become a GOTMA Service Provider
Although many of our service providers offered scholarships before affiliating with GOTMA (for example, when a student’s parent loses their job) GOTMA’s aim is to increase the number of scholarships available. Martial arts training facilities are often limited in their ability to accept more challenged or impaired students, whether due to staffing or other practical constraints GOTMA is dedicated to bring quality martial arts training to as many special and needy children as possible.
GOTMA will assist competition and demonstration teams as this is a proven vehicle to keep students focused on positive activities with an end result. Participants will be urged to bring to bear all of the teachings in their preparation for these momentous events. The purpose of these types of activities are to put students “in the spotlight” in order to help them gain confidence in front of a crowd. These skills will provide lifelong benefits for participants.
Focused students are less likely to get in trouble than those with less direction and too much unstructured time on their hand. Martial arts combine art with athleticism, developing the body mind and spirit of participants. Martial arts allow everyone to play – game-day action is not reserved for the most gifted, and since there is no season for martial arts, it can help keep practitioners focused on their goals, year-round. In the same way other sports offer students the experience of training and physical activity as their young bodies are growing, martial arts students begin to develop the understanding of the mechanics behind warming up, working out, and the necessity of stretching. As these skills become part of their awareness, their own self discipline helps them make good choices regardless of the circumstances they are in.
Please support GOTMA with you donations and volunteer efforts and help us reach out to more underprivileged and special need children and build a better future one kick at a time.
