June Mat Chat: RESPECT

Dear Parents,

This month we will focus on the character lesson: RESPECT. One of the most important things you can teach your children is respect. Some parents think that respect is the same thing as obedience. Children will obey a parent because they are afraid, but if they respect you, they will obey you because they know that you know what is best for them.

Here is a guideline regarding children and respect based on age:

  • With children ages 3 and 4; they are just learning how to act appropriately with others. Teach them how to have good manners such as saying “please” and “thank you.”
  • With children ages 5 and 6; they are learning that the way they act will have an affect on others, both positively and negatively. Teach them how to have good sportsmanship.
  • With children ages 7 and 9; they are becoming more independent and making their own decisions. Teach them about self-respect.
  • With children ages 10 and up; they are at an age where identity and popularity becomes important. Teach them about having respect for their friends by not gossiping or bullying.

Children can learn respect simply by following your good example. Make sure that you do not talk down to your children, embarrass them, or belittle them. This will only make them shut down. Another way to build respect is to give them a chance to make decisions and give their point of view. Also make sure you reinforce respectful behavior when it is demonstrated at home and in public. As a parent, if you can nurture a respectful environment in your home, then your children will naturally become more respectful and it will carry over to other areas of their life.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to watching our youthful students demonstrate the utmost respect for themselves and others.

Sincerely,
Senpai Traina

About our programs

Early SKILLZ
Preschool - Kindergarten

3–4 year-olds are naturally curious. They might not be ready for the rigid structure of a traditional martial arts class ... but they do need to start learning about appropriate social behavior!

- DISCOVER -

Basic SKILLZ
1st Grade - 3rd Grade

It's often easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5-6 year old children. They're better at following directions and paying attention than younger children, but they still need some help controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.
- DISCOVER -

Core SKILLZ
3rd Grade - 5th Grade

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily - far more easily than we do as adults. Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, but they're also learning the value of self-discipline and respect.

Teens Karate
High School Program

Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our dojo instead! Teenagers are smart and capable - but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations - and an opportunity to be their best.- DISCOVER -

Ages 17+

Martial arts training is fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for adults. Studying martial arts is something that anybody - at any age or fitness level - can do. Our programs make learning fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for busy parents!
