This instalment of CBBC’s documentary series offers a fascinating insight into three disabled youngsters as they attend a pioneering school for children with physical disabilities. There’s plenty of inspiration to be gleaned as we follow the trio as they take up martial arts, but it’s 12-year-old Tim and his bid to gain a glimmer of independence that really sticks in the memory.


Three friends who attend a school for children with physical disabilities and special educational needs take martial arts classes in a bid to improve their fitness and self-confidence. The instructor aims to use his methods to teach pupils self-respect and self-discipline, and one of the boys seems to respond particularly well.
