Here at Confidence Martial Arts the life skill of the month is Courtesy! So make sure when you are bowing onto the mat for all of February you say, “Courtesy Sir!” But what does courtesy mean? Courtesy means behaving in a way that shows good manners and behavior. Some one who is courteous treats other people, animals, and things well! This month we want each student to think about how they can show courtesy at home, at school, in their community, and to their instructors here at Confidence Martial Arts.
Here are a few examples to get you going: Share your belonging with a friend or family member. Do not complain if your parents or teacher asks you to do something. Do NOT leave someone out of activities or conversation. Finally, think how others will feel before you say something. Challenge yourself to be extra courteous this month. Think of 3 things you can do for 3 different people to show them courtesy. If you can accomplish this, write what you did down on a piece of paper and give it to your instructor and you will earn a blue star AND a silver star!!! Have a very courteous February!
