I am writing with a question about children's training. My 9-year old daughter is asking about karate alot lately. My area is yoga and when it comes to martial arts I am uncertain about how to direct her except to say that CST and silat are my natural inclinations for her to learn. However, neither are availabe in our immediate vicinity, at least to my knowledge.
So, my question to the tribe is 2-part:
Does anyone know of silat and/or CST for kids in the western mass area?
Where would you train your kid in martial arts if CST weren't available locally?
Grant it, she is exposed to influences from Rmax, Yoga and Sufism yet we would also like to give her the classroom experience but don't want to taint her with the false experience of purely physical martial arts.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
