When’s the best time to get a child to comply with your instructions?
When they’re feeling happy, secure and focused, of course! That’s why our martial arts schools work hard to set a positive atmosphere. That’s how we reap such positive results.
To do this, we make sure our school is an upbeat place to be. Our instructors know that as leaders of the school, they are in the business of creating a mood for learning and being the best.
Stated very simply, we want to project a positive spirit and set the stage to make sure students are inspired to learn.
As parents, you know that being positive around your children will always make them strive to be the best.
When students and families walk in the door, we greet one another with a bow and a smile. From the moment they step foot into the school, they know they will be treated with positive encouragement.
Therefore, they do not fear being ridiculed for trying. They do not fear failure because they know they will be encouraged to keep going even when the going is tough.
By creating a positive, upbeat mood, we have found that students don’t fear trying new things, even if these things might be difficult. They know they are in a positive place.
