During the last few years, the concept of sport for peace and development (SDP) has gained widespread acceptance. However, the existing literature has only examined the concept through a limited set of theoretical lenses, necessitating the development of additional theoretical frameworks in order to better understand its dynamics. The inclusion of martial arts training in SDP programs will aid in increasing the impact of sustainable development on the beneficiaries. The concepts of physical activity and value education found in the martial arts are ideal tools for achieving the SDGs objectives in this regard, and they may aid in the development of more impactful programs in this regard as well. This thesis will evaluate significant case studies that reflect on the impact of the SDP programs across a wide range of disadvantaged communities in different parts of the world.
