COURTESY IS AN IMPORTANT LIFE SKILL TO LEARN. WHEN YOU ARE COURTEOUS, YOU SHOW POLITENESS TO OTHER PEOPLE. YOU USE YOUR MANNERS, RESPECT OTHERS AND ARE CONSIDERATE. BEING COURTEOUS HELPS YOU TO MAKE FRIENDS AND EARN RESPECT FROM OTHERS.

Dear Parents/Guardians…

This month we are learning about courtesy and why it is such an important skill to develop and use. Being courteous to everybody is expected in our class. Our students should be courteous to their classmates, instructors and and visitors in the building. Courtesy should also be used at home and at school. Students should know and understand why it is important to be courteous, that sometimes it is difficult to show courtesy, the benefits of being courteous and different ways to show courtesy.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Be a role model – kids quickly pick up and mimic the actions of their parents. If they see their parents being courteous, they will be courteous. But if they see parents behaving poorly, they will follow that example as well.
  • Books and videos – there are several books and videos available to demonstrate good manners and courtesy in story form. These educational pieces can help kids get a visual idea of how to be courteous all the time. It is important not only to read and watch these with your kids, but also to talk about them after and make sure kids understand the concept.
  • Require kids to use manners – Make sure your kids are saying please and thank you when they ask for something. Teach them not to interrupt people when they are talking. Ensure they understand why it is important to use manners at all times.
  • Make sure your kids know the importance of good sportsmanship – If your kids play sports, try not to allow complaining or moping if they lose. Instead, encourage them to congratulate their opponents on a good game. If they are the winner, make sure they are gracious winners and not rubbing it in the losing team’s face.

Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook for a new talk and questions to ask your kids to encourage a great talk about courtesy each week – here’s a sneak peak …

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.

Junior Karate SKILLZ
Middle School Program

Karate may normally make you think of self-defense, fitness, and discipline ... the truth is, it's all of that and WAY more!
Our program helps our students build skills that they can APPLY to every area of their life and empower them to be the very best they can possibly be!

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 -
