Folks took notice when Ned stepped into Tora Khan Martial Arts last week. Why? Because he wasn't wearing the school's white gi--and he wasn't wearing the black gi he trains in when visited by his mysterious mentor. No ... Ned had on a blue gi top in honor of October, which is Bullying Prevention Month! Now, Sensei Melissa, being a very traditional sort of sensei who expects her ranks to be dressed the same at each class, wasn't happy at first. However, after Ned explained, his sensei couldn't be happier.
After all, being a 'mental martial artist' isn't just about training your own mind to be strong and to take pride in yourself. Martial artists should be the diamonds in society and, as such, should promote good character and look out for those who can't defend themselves.
