To the parent that “allows” their child to choose attending martial arts training or not,
Look at the parents of our highest belt rank students.
Those Red Senior and Black Belt students had hard times too.
They had weak moments and wanted to quit too.
They wanted to do other activities too.
They were single parents too.
They worked through sickness too.
They worked through jobless periods too.
They worked through the divorces, the car accidents, the global pandemics, the changes in housing, the changes in school, the broke down car and the frustrations of dealing with a kid that didn’t always want to go.
But they know something, maybe you know it, maybe you don’t. They know the value of this training. They are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure their kids get the benefits of this training.
They would say to you, “If you let your child choose to attend then you are misjudging the value of the Ancient Ways program. If you truly understood the powerful things your child would gain from this, then you would do everything in your power to get them here over anything else they might want to do, no matter the cost and no matter the time required.”
If you think they’re wrong, please consider the fact that they have been bringing their child a lot longer than you have and maybe they are right, and you are wrong.
Get your kid to class, don’t give them the choice and those benefits of Perseverance, Self-Discipline, Confidence, A lifetime of Fitness and the ability to defend themselves will be theirs, thanks to you.
