Character Counts: Respect

Home / Uncategorized / Character Counts / Character Counts: Respect

In the Martial Arts world, we practice respect all the time. We listen to higher ranks, bow to enter and exit classrooms and to demonstrate our level of respect, and we utilize respectful words.


All of that is unimportant, unless you are practicing your respect everywhere you go. A Black Belt is a model of respect! Demonstrate your respect by remembering to:

Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule

Be tolerant and accepting of differences

Use good manners, not bad language

Be considerate of the feelings of others

Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone

Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
