Just say “NO” to sports drinks
Those of you who have been around our karate school for a while know this but, for those who are newer, let me remind you:
Sports drinks are dangerous and no one in our karate school should be drinking them.
Sports drinks, particularly those with electrolytes and caffeine, are known to have resulted in deaths amongst kids and teenagers.
Electrolyte replacements should only be used under the direction of a doctor.
No one in our karate school works hard enough that they need to consume electrolytes or other sports drinks.
Sports drinks are not allowed in our karate school and parents are urged not to allow their kids to drink them.
During classes, students only need water to quench their thirst.
Water or a glass of milk is all that’s needed after karate training.
