I participated in the Adaptive Sports Festival hosted by The University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Institute, formerly Kernan Rehabilitation Hospital. It was an expo informing the public on the types of sports available to the differently abled.
I helped to demonstrate a modified curriculum currently being developed for Paraplegics by my awesome instructors, Nick Murphy, Kirk Andrews, Mark Herbert and Jason Howell at Krav Maga MD World Wide. I am currently a level 3 practitioner in the system, working on what would be the equivalent of a Green Belt.
I have been discreet in telling people that I was practicing this form of martial arts/self defense to the public but since we had such a large crowd gathered during the demonstration, I decided to share. If you know anyone who maybe interested in learning such tactics of self defense for able bodied people or paraplegics, please contact Krag Maga MD at www.kravmd.com
