The therapeutic methods and types of concrete martial arts that can be recommended for people with disorders caused by autism were highlighted. In conclusion, integrating children through the means of martial arts will allow them to gain confidence in themselves, and in their strength, as well as to coordinate, and control separate segments of the body while performing the movements from the simplest to the most complicated.
