Life Lessons Developed Through Martial Arts
Classes at Black Tiger end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way.
Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:
- Avoiding conflicts
- Dealing with bullies
- Mental self defense
- Proper respect for adults
- Stranger awareness
- Respect for self and others
- Saying no to drugs and peer pressure
These valuable life lessons help our students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.
