What do martial arts and reading have in common? They both empower a person to be smarter, stronger, more confident. So what better place to promote reading than in a martial arts dojo/dojang?

Sensei Sean Griffin of Griffin’s Martial Arts in North Fort Myers, Florida has been promoting reading in his dojang and recently shared some photos of men reading with kids and older kids reading with younger kids. Check our FlickR page to see all the pictures.

We commend Sensei Griffin for his efforts. We’d love to see other dojos/dojangs rise to the challenge and encourage more men to read with kids. If your dojo is reading with kids, let us know about it by sharing your story here.

If you need some help to get started, here are a couple of lists of martial arts-related books that your dojo students might enjoy.

Gamsahabnida, Sensei Griffin!
