Martial Arts Instructors are self-defense teachers who specialize in any of the various martial arts disciplines that are often oriental in origin like Tae-Kwon-do, Karate, Jujitsu, and Kung-Fu.  While there are other exotic martial arts from South Africa and Europe, these oriental disciplines are the more popular.  Some martial arts instructors are private practitioners who have training studios of their own or are employed as regular teachers in a martial arts school focusing on any of these disciplines. The course is popular among kids during summer breaks.
