    Are you of German decent, or is your ancestry from elsewhere? I ask, because on my mother's side, is German (Raaf surname), and Irish (Flaherty). I know Rafe is your first name, but I can't help but think Raaf and Rafe are somehow variations of spelling. Just out of pure curiosity, and boredom.

    If you're in the US then try for grappling, few parents would be happy with something like Boxing or Muay Thai, and you know how litigation happy we tend to be over here.

    In Minden, LA, a small town 20 mins. east of Shreveport. Minden High has the first accredited course in MMA. The instructor was telling me at a tourney Sat. that it took a while to get the paper work filled and done but the are having to turn students away because the class is filled.

    A private religious school here in Rochester has a boxing program, and they apparently put on shows with their high schoolers. The organization is called Mission Bouts, and it's run by the owner of a local boxing gym- http://rocboxing.com/contact.htm

    See if you can get in touch and maybe get some pointers. Upon further research, they're one of only three in the whole country, and I think they're all private schools. If you work in a public school, best of luck floating the idea of a boxing program past any kind of sanctioning board.

    Public schools (high school) would be a hard sell for martial arts programs because of how lawsuit-happy people get.

    Judo is part of the PE curriculum in a lot of schools in Europe and Asia; France, Japan and Korea in particular. TKD is part of the curriculum in Korea and you can even get a Bachelor degree in it.

    I teach jr. high (middle school) and I have full support from my admin for starting an MA club that follows our wrestling season.

    In fact martial arts is written in as an acceptable activity as part of our regions phys-ed curriculum.

    Safety of course is always the number one concern so be aware of your students and the culture of your community before undertaking an MA program that is new to the school. Other than that be creative with how you approach the training. Remember you deal with kids so the approach you use with them within a school environment will be different than how you deal with adults in a gym environment.

    Thanks again, everyone! Very cool info, definitely helps me to define what I am looking for.

    They have to be senior cycle students, meaning they are all 16 or above.

    I drew up an "Ettiquete of Grappling", basically a list or rules, and each student had to sign it. I also had their parents sign a waiver form, considering it is a contact sport.

    After that I run it just like a normal bjj class is run. The kids roll with each other, and I'll also roll with most if not all of them at each session (they love the oppertunity to try and tap me out).

    When pitching the idea to my principal, i put it forward as a sport rather than a martial art, and actually likened it to high school wrestling in order to give him some concept of what i was doing

    As an aside, I now also give classes to some of the teachers in the school on a seperate evening
    Wow, thanks a lot! - I literally yearn to learn BJJ, but with respect to my school carreer, I would maybe prefer Judo or boxing, because they seem more compatible with school sports.

    Exactly my point. Even with less touchy sports, pretty fucked up things might happen once you let the kids on the loose.
