ST. PETERSBURG – As part of Shihan School of Survival’s 2018 MLK Day of Service project entitled “Youth Health and Safety Education,” Shihan Walter Evans will take time to discuss the connections between the principles of martial arts and the philosophical and practical ideas of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Evans won’t just be talking during MLK Family Fun Day at Tropicana Field, he’ll be laying down mats and leading some of his students in an exhibition of various martial arts skills they’ve learned.
He plans to start the exhibition around 3:30 p.m. and will conduct several different 15 to 20-minute sessions on the mats. He’ll also invite viewers to join the students to try some of the more basic martial arts moves.
