I have two boys who have communication problems. They are smart, loving and very trusting. I have had problems with my oldest being bullied/picked on certain occasions. I am thinking about enrolling both of my children into Martial Arts just to give them confidence and some knowledge on how to defend themselves. My fear is....Well, I can't hover over them for the rest of their lives nor can I smother them during their childhood. By the way my boys are high functioning Autism but to me that is not even an issue. When you answer this question please think how you would answer for a NT child. Thank You.

Thank You ladies for responding and giving positive feed back. You have given me reassurance on what I was already thinking, That it would help with other aspects of their lives as well. Thank You. My husband was looking for something that would help with self-confidence, with learning respect and other aspects of life.
As for that anonymous comment...that is a typical response from someone who wants to be anonymous. You obviously didn't read the other responses nor did you read anything I wrote.
