South Windsor High school has numerous club and sports opportunities for students. There are clubs for art, cooking, debate, and multiple cultural clubs teaching different languages. SWHS also offers clubs for physical activity as well, including  golf, weightlifting, and an outdoor club. There are clubs for all interests and students are even allowed to create their own if they so choose.

Therefore, a karate club should not be formed because of the possible dangers due to this type of activity. This sport could be a hazard if students do not have a proper teacher, someone certified to teach this sport. To form a club, one must have a teacher familiar with the subject and willing to stay after to monitor it. A teacher would have to watch over the group of participants and probably teach the class. To make a karate club possible, I think the school must hire a professional karate teacher and get the right materials for it as well. 

Moreover, karate is a very physical sport and SWHS offers many other activities as an alternative. Joining wrestling can help release some stress, learn defense skills, and overall is a good workout.

SWHS would need to put extensive effort into the formation of a karate club. It would be difficult to combat a safe learning environment for those involved. As a result, I think that it would be more beneficial if the school focused that effort on sports we already offer.
