Education

WAKO is committed to providing a pathway of education for the Kickboxer. More specifically, the WAKO GB member, be it a new student, an upcoming instructor, an already established instructor/coach that maybe wishes to progress their Martial Arts career and expand upon their knowledge.

We believe in Continued Development of a human being and certainly see the benefits of the sports person in terms of avoiding becoming stale and hitting reversibility with training and teaching.

Education provides us with knowledge about the world. It paves the way for a good career. It helps build character. It leads to enlightenment. It lays the foundation of a stronger nation. Education makes a person complete. Kautilya, an Indian philosopher, royal adviser, and professor of economics and political science very rightly underlined the importance of education, some 2000 years ago. He has highlighted the fact that education enriches people’s understanding of themselves. He has said that education is an investment in human capital, and it can have a great impact on a nation’s growth and development. This philosophy is synonymous with The Way of the Martial Artist.
