Marcus Salgado is a young martial artist from the South Bronx who leads the viewer through a stunning array of community martial arts activity in New York City. The tape shows classes that promote health, self-defense and Black awareness, kung fu katas and examples of racism in the depiction of Black contributions to modern martial arts. Salgado and his instructors demonstrate how martial arts has had a positive impact on the lives of Black martial arts enthusiasts ranging from pre-schoolers to seniors.
