“Bullying is something that continues today regardless of how we try to combat it, the only way that we as a society can make a difference is by bringing attention to it, showing kids that they are not alone and giving them a path to deal with it, combat it themselves and honestly showing them how to defend themselves against the physical. This is a confidence builder and will help them through out their lives. “The Martial Arts Kid” Movie is a must see film for all young people and adults alike, it has been acknowledged by a number of film festivals and the players in the film have had their fair share of accolades for their performances. So if you have the chance to catch it on Netflix, get the DVD or see it in a theater then you should.” – Louis Velazquez, UCW Radio Show host.
