Blue Stripe Challenge!
What is it? And why?
Self-defense is important! But honestly rarely used in life…don’t get me wrong, I am glad that I know how to defend myself and knowing I have that ability gives me confidence. But I have never had to use it!
What I have had to use are the life skills that martial arts practice has instilled in me. I use those life skills daily!
Let’s take this cycle’s topic, discipline! Do you use discipline in your home life? Work life? If you are a successful person then the answer has to be YES! Successful people are disciplined people.
So how are we teaching your child about discipline? We talk about the 4 levels of discipline every class. If your child is focusing (another great life skill for success!) then they should be able to tell you the 4 levels of discipline without having to think very hard. We help them show discipline by putting their shoes where they belong, not kicking their partner too hard, correcting their front stances in their form and keeping their hands up after kicking or punching. All little things…but the result is a deeper understanding of what being a disciplined person means!
Honestly teaching the kids about discipline has encouraged me to be personally more disciplined. Little habits developed over time makes a world of difference in our lives!
So why do we ask the kids explain the levels of discipline to you?
So, what are those levels?
