C1 TRAINING: SELF MASTERY
Overriding Ethos
The concept of self mastery considers the individuals’ knowledge of self from 3 standpoints:
1. Their identity, where it is anchored
2. Their history, both inherited and own life experiences
3. Their future, the vision that they are either working towards or following

The key overriding objectives for this training as listed above where achieved using the Martial Arts as a tool for Self Discovery, Self Analysis and Self Mastery. Aspects of facets of ‘Self’ was explored on many levels and participants gained an understanding and acceptance for difference of persons (personality profiling) and cultures. Participants were led on a journey of self awareness, self knowledge and self understanding as well as engaging in various Martial Arts training.


Learning Methods
The following teaching and learning methodologies where followed with respect to delivering the learning outcomes of the project:
1. Non-formal learning (fundamentals of the Martial Arts as a metaphor and tool)
2. Creative presentations
3. Discussions
4. Group work
5. Team based tasked

The Learning Outcomes for the Self Mastery training was thus:
1. Be able to manage own behaviour
2. Be able to evaluate Emotional Awareness and ask basic self questions
a. What are my desires regarding my current situation?
i. How do I feel about it? How do I perform best?
3. Have Self Confident
a. What is my degree of certainty that I’ve got what it takes to accomplish the job at hand?
4. Be able to build and work effectively in a team
5. Be able to evaluate Delights, Puzzles and Irritations in cross cultural encounters

SEE - Sample EU Entrepreneurs

Czech Republic blog
Boarding the plane to Prague I still was not quite sure of what to expect from my week in Czech Republic. I knew that there would be different organisations from around Europe, I knew that we would be doing different workshops on social enterprise but honestly that was the extent of preparation.

I decided to participate in the programme for a couple reasons. The first being that I was interested in the focal point of the training, which was creating opportunities for young people in terms of employment as well as encouraging entrepreneurship and active citizenship.

Another reason was that I love travelling and visiting new places. Mala Skala was a place I probably would not ordinarily travel to which was even more reason to go.
The week was filled with a mix of workshops and trips to different places of interest in and around Mala Skala. The workshops included self-reflection (thinking about our passions and motivations) and activities getting us to think about business and using business to tackle social and local issues. Of all the trips I think my favourite was the visit to AAC Bizuterie – a jewellers specialising in hand-made glass beads. Whilst professionals were creating beautiful beads in seconds we all had a go and I think it’s safe to way our creations were no masterpieces! To say it is harder than it looks would be an understatement!

One of the highlights of the week was the intercultural evening. The intercultural evening is an Erasmus+ staple and it is a time for everyone to share the culture of their country, whether that be the history, fun facts or my personal favourite the food. The evening was accompanied by music covering everything from the chart-topping Las Ketchup to Ukraine’s winning Eurovision entry. There was also the opportunity to learn some dance moves from Turkey and Spain. Think it’s safe to that intercultural evening was a success!
After a week in Czech Republic I feel like I have gained quite a lot. I gained an insight into the local culture of Mala Skala and their innovative approach to social enterprise. From this we all were inspired to think about projects we can initiate ourselves. Finally one of the most important things I took home form Czech were the friendships formed. It was so interesting to meet people who are all from different cities across Europe but we all had at least one thing common that we could have a conversation about.

I would definitely recommend an Erasmus+ programme. In addition to the benefits of the various activities I think it’s a fantastic way to grow your network in a world that seems very disconnected.
