When was the last time you saw a group of kids who were dedicated, driven, and achieving success?
The last Thursday of each month is testing at SMA, and it presents both students who are testing, and their parents, with a wonderful opportunity to express and receive gratitude respectively.
Does your child have an “Attitude of Gratitude?”
At the end of each test, we ask students to “sit on their ‘x’ and close their eyes.” Then we invite the parents out on the mat and ask them to sit in front of their child. When the students open their eyes, they see their parents sitting in front of them holding the new belt, not the instructors. One of the main reasons for doing this is because we want students to have a chance to thank their parents for everything their parents have done for them throughout the past months.
You have a Highly-Trained Team of Professionals here to ensure your child’s development!
While the instructors provide martial arts instruction on the mat, we know that a student’s achievement in karate is made possible by many other people as well. In particular, we know children’s success in karate is due in large part to the committed adults in their lives: the adults that drive them to each class, that make sure their uniform is clean, that sit in the waiting room and support them when they try a new technique. We recognize this and we want our students to recognize this. We look forward to many more tests with our students – many more times for them to tell their parents “thank you.”

This is a little golden nugget that you already have!
How many times do you combine tone of voice and facial expression to get a point across to your kids that you are serious? How about to a co-worker? A friend?
Ultimately, you say or do something to drive a point home by putting some “oomph” behind your words or actions. The fact is, you use intention all the time! I invite you to do it on the mat as well.
Is there any other place in life where having a little more intention would serve you? Would improve a circumstance? A level of communication?
Do you think that if you applied yourself in this way, that you would start to break through that plateau and begin seeing physical transformation again?
I invite you to try.
My colleagues laughed when I told them I signed up for kickboxing, but they weren’t laughing when they witnessed my 15 pound weight loss!
