Whilst there are many models for youth or sport programmes, including several using martial arts, there has been very little systematic attempt to determine how effective these programmes are as youth development tools. There has also been little work to define effectiveness in this context: what could we achieve with well-designed programmes? The first report was commissioned to design an evaluation framework that could be used as a benchmark for measuring the effectiveness of existing programmes and to identify the necessary programmatic elements needed when designing new programmes. As the elements relevant to youth development apply to sport programmes in general, the evaluation is developed within this broader context and then additional considerations relevant to martial arts are explored. The intention of the second report is to provide a selection of good practices from martial arts on youth development and youth empowerment, evaluated through a rigorous academic method to determine their effectiveness and impact.
