Martial arts violence
Correct martial arts will teach children an art form that encompasses a robust method of self defence. Going along side and blanketing the physical skills should be a moral code that is constantly reflected on every lesson. But the student still needs to know how to defend themselves under pressure, other wise they are wasting their time learning martial arts.
Martial Arts code of ethics.
It also comes back to the moral framework of the school; are the instructors good at teaching the children all physical and then relating the code of ethics to the class structure, or is the instructor teaching the child violent moves and actually inspiring and motivating the children to become violent.
