Received a list of Halloween safety tips today from Midwest Martial Art's Academy and its instructor, eighth-degree black belt Charlie Foxman.

The advice includes warning children to trick-or-treat only at "friendly houses" that leave their lights on and taping reflective tape onto the kiddos costumes to keep them safe from cars.

Sadly, though, the press release contains absolutely no mention of having children "karate chop" or "sweep the leg" if they get into trouble on All Hallows' Eve.

One wonders: What's the point of the martial arts lessons?

See for yourself after the jump.
