Perseverance vs. Indomitable Spirit
What is the difference between perseverance and indomitable-Spirit? How do we help them both, here at AKF Lexington Martial Arts.
Learning to FOCUS! How Martial Arts helps!
Most Martial arts schools teach life skills of some kind. Check reviews and culture of any martial arts school to see if they really do focus on development of life skills. Focus is a common need noted by parents, but how do we build focus?
It takes a village to raise a child but it takes a village, that communicates, to raise a leader!
Come see how the village, you and me, can work together to make our children stronger, safer and ready to lead!
Politics & Martial Arts? We can fix what is broken!
No matter where you stand in politics it is likely true that you believe we can do better as a country. Martial arts instructors have a tool that can help us do better! The Tenets of Kyuki-do; Courtesy, Humility, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control and Indomitable Spirit.
Enroll your child into martial arts, or any activity that holds similar values important! The future is not gloomy! I believe we are already on our way to better days!
How to avoid the teenage HELL YEARS! Controversial answer?
If I could tell you how to avoid argumentative, temperamental, aggressive teenage children you are raising, would you listen?
What does it take to go from nothing to AWESOME?
Get engaged! Don't just say it, do it!
Martial Arts greatness is just like any other life skill you wish to excel at. The more you DO IT the better you become at it!
It takes a village to raise a child or in this case it takes all of us to create the best possible learning environment.
Martial Arts Better Than Baseball?
Now, before you coaches and athletes get mad, I mean no offense and no disrespect. I love and support all physical and mental sports and activities. Anything we do, and give it our all, will result in the betterment of the practitioner.
However, to keep your interest let me give this one opinion here. I have never heard of a martial artist add baseball to their list of activities in order to better their martial arts. I have heard of baseball athletes add on martial arts to their list of activities in order to better their baseball.
Let's get into it!
Learning from History, it matters!
Mat chats this week are talking about 'Learning From History.' This approach to the topic of history is a bit different than what you are used to. Learn from past experiences and never let successes or failures lose their educational advantage for your future. Confidence is built through history. Perseverance is demonstrated through history. Self-control is encouraged through history and so much more!
Home-Schooling and Martial Arts
Let's talk about why Martial Arts training makes sense for homeschoolers! The martial arts advantage give kids of all educational paths a leg up but homeschooling is a topic near and dear to me. Social skills, leadership skills, self-control and self-respect are just the beginning of the advantage martial arts training can bring to your family.
BIG EMOTIONS & BIG DECISIONS
More than Kicks and Punches. What else is needed to earn a blackbelt.
The Martial Arts Advantage
Quality vs Belt Factory
Life sucks? Walk through the door!
The Student Pledge helps us be better
We hold dear these five pledges every AKF Lexington Martial Arts Student needs to learn. Not that we nail each of them perfectly, but that we agree to always keep an open mind in working toward them. In doing so we help ourselves improve and help our communities by being a better example for others.
Cleanliness and Discipline
Lending a Helping Hand
Bullying Sucks! Let's talk about it.
Respect (you get it?)
Doing things the first time we are told is the very first way we, in martial arts training, help create respectful attitudes! Learn more about respect and help make the world a happier place, because the more we grow the happier we will be!
