Working through the tough spots

 in Bradenton - Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy

Everyone hits plateaus in life.

What you learn from working past the plateaus is way more valuable than learning to be a quitter.

Kids cannot work past those plateaus alone. They need the strength of their parents to keep them coming and keep working hard through those parts. It's not always exciting and it's not always fun, but you didn't come to us to be entertained, but instead to develop a strength of character, learn valuable things and gain amazing skills that will last a lifetime.

Working through those plateaus in your training is not just expected, but a requirement. The character you develop from working through and not quitting will give you the strength to see yourself through all of life's tough spots.

Once students are here, they are always glad they came, just know that the day will come, sooner or later when all students will not want to go to class.

Parents, be strong for your child when they can't be. When they don't want to eat their vegitables. When they don't want to go to bed on time. When they want to skip school or skip bath time or their homework or chores. Make their training here important to YOU and it will be important to THEM. They get no choice about attendance, just like those other important things. 

Make sure to praise them for coming to class, stay and watch and give them your approving smiles and thumbs up during class. Talk to them after each class and let them know you are proud of them. If they say they don't want you to stay and watch, do it anyway. Their words do not match the needs of their subconscious. 

It's a good idea to make sure that whatever they are doing before class isn't all that fun either. It's a lot easier to get them excited to go in this scenario: 

"After you finish the dishes, we will go to Karate,"
than it is in this scenario:
"Stop playing that awesome video game so you can go to Karate."


See you in class,

Master Brown
