Keep the Martial Arts Club Kickin’!
Your Tiger Giving Day donation would provide matting and safety equipment to make practicing physical fitness safer for the Martial Arts Club.
The mats used by the Martial Arts Club provide some of the only padded flooring on campus for non-gymnast students, making it the only safe indoor space to practice and learn martial arts and self-defense. These heavily padded mats account for safety, convenience, and cleanliness for dozens of students.
Additional safety equipment keeps students safe while allowing participation in more rigorous training, such as realistic sparring and self-defense scenarios.
Unfortunately, the mats only cover about half of the room’s floor, and the safety equipment is mostly old and secondhand.
Our club is expanding beyond the limits of our current equipment, but we hope to add to our resources to accommodate everyone as we continue to grow the Martial Arts family at Auburn.
