This is my first posting to Scouts-L although I have been following the list
for a while. I was recently asked by a new Scout about the Sports Merit Badge,
which allows judo for an individual sport but excludes karate. Not being
an expert on martial arts, I could only tell him that activities that have
a high potential for injury are excluded from BSA sanctioned activities.
He then asked me about Tae Kwan Do (sp?) and I was unsure whether that
would be ok or not. Anyone have any insight?
