What Do We Teach? Social Skills

One of the most important aspects of what is taught and encouraged at the dojo is social skills. A couple of quick questions. Does your son or daughter shy away from other adults? Are they afraid to ask for help or ask questions? Do they make eye contact when they speak to others? Do they know how to properly introduce themselves to people? Do they shake hands? Do they greet people when they walk into a room? I think those things are so important in life. I know I have struggled with these things. I was never taught to do them and in some cases was discouraged from doing them.

The dojo is a safe place for practicing these things. I encourage all of our students to greet classmates and instructors when they enter the studio. When a new student shows up to class our veterans are expected to greet them and introduce themselves and shake hands with the new student. During class, we ask that our long time students encourage and uplift those struggling, and the students who might be having a hard time are encouraged to ask for help or ask questions. Not knowing is ok. Not knowing and doing nothing about it is not ok. Struggling and making mistakes is fine because that is how we learn. Struggling and doing nothing is not helpful.

The things I mentioned above should become natural for a student of the Martial Arts. They need to be second nature meaning that they just happen naturally as the student proceeds through life. The thing is everything mentioned above has to be trained and developed over time. They are things that we should do because they speak volumes about who we are. I believe the things mentioned above give us an advantage when it comes to success. I know they have helped me tremendously.
