This month at 1st Class Martial Arts, we are teaching students about the importance of courtesy. Courtesy means showing good manners, but it is about so much more than that. Showing courtesy can make a big difference in the lives of the people we interact with and in the development of our own personality and attitude. 💛
Following moral ideals can help children develop a likable character and a pleasant personality. You, as a parent, and your family, play an important role in guiding, supporting, and hand-holding your children in the path of developing moral values.

Despite the known health benefits, it's hard to find the motivation to work out regularly, whether it's due to fatigue, not enjoying your workouts, or prioritizing other areas of life. If that's the case, here are some tips to help you stay motivated in reaching your fitness goals.

Responsibility means knowing that we are in control of our thoughts and actions. This is a crucial trait for children to develop in order to be functional, successful, and stable adults. This month at 1st Class Martial Arts, we will be teaching our students the consequences or outcomes that make doing something necessary.

08/31/2022

We don't need to be in competition with others but always striving to be a better version of ourselves.

08/25/2022

Be so rooted in yourself, so that no one’s absence or presence can disturb your inner peace. 💪🏽

08/23/2022

Self-respect also includes owning up to your mistakes. If you owe someone an apology, swallow your pride, give them one, and mean it.

Martial arts places a strong emphasis on showing respect for others. In this lesson, we are studying an equally important facet of respect: self-respect. Children who have a strong sense of respect for themselves are more likely to be confident, less likely to be the victim or perpetrator of bullying, take better care of themselves, and are more willing to try new things without fear of failure or “looking bad.”🥋

08/01/2022

Self-respect means that we appreciate ourselves and see our own worth! We don’t have to be perfect in order to have self-respect. In fact, self-respect means we can look at where we need to improve, without thinking less of ourselves. This month at 1st Class Martial Arts, we are challenging our students to focus on a few techniques to improve, and then to compliment themselves for their hard work!

Clutter in our possessions is clutter in our mind. Staying organized helps us make clearer decisions and focus.

This month at 1st Class Martial Arts, we are teaching students the importance of organization. Few people - and fewer children - enjoy these activities. The key to successfully instilling organization as a value is explaining the value of the aftermath rather than cleaning for the sake of cleaning.

This month at 1st Class Martial Arts, we are teaching students about the importance of self-awareness. Physical awareness can be a great metaphor for self-awareness. Almost anyone can tell when they are comfortable, too hot, in pain, etc. Being emotionally self-aware can be more difficult, especially for young people who are still learning how to process and express emotions.

Expectations are resentments waiting to happen. You can only control the work that you put in. 🥋 💪🏽
