Patient : I run a taekwondo class in my area and I have been told by one of the parents that their child suffers with ADHD. I have no problem with a child taking part in the class as I believe exercise is good for them.
My query would be in a few years that child my still be in the class and would want to compete in competitions. There is head contact in these events. Would it be safe to let him compete in such events.
