Doing what you like is FUN.
Doing what you love is HAPPINESS.
Doing what you want is FREEDOM.
Doing what you say is INTEGRITY.
Doing what you can is SERVICE.
Doing what you must is DUTY.
Doing what you should is CHARACTER.

It’s no secret: Martial arts helps individuals of all ages develop and hone mental rigor and discipline. For children, this type of training is especially important, as it helps them learn to respect others and follow protocol.
Within martial arts’ focus on discipline, there is room for creativity, though. In sparring sessions, children learn how to creatively combine their skills for effectiveness, all while staying within the stated rules.
When children move out of the studio, they can take these skills with them into the classroom. This can help young students improve problem-solving abilities in both academic and social situations.

"What would I lose by being able to learn Karate instantly? I’d miss out on all the lessons in perseverance. I wouldn’t have been lifted up by the encouragement of quite a number of people. Leadership skills and learning how to be a teacher depend on other people – those wonderfully unique people who are your mentors, peers, and students. Respect is so much more than saying “Ossu!” (“Yes Sir!”) and knowing who comes up from a bow first. Respect is relational and grows over time.

Perhaps the biggest thing I’d miss out on are the lessons in empathy. I need to be aware of what my kohai (plural – lower ranked students) need from me because I too once struggled (and maybe am still struggling) with the same things they are. I need to be aware that my sempai (plural – higher ranked students) and sensei (plural – black belts) have some very awesome skills but they are still human and need appreciation and encouragement just like everyone else." #PecksTKD #MartialArts
