Do we have Honor as a society? What is Honor? Honor is the 1st rule of a Martial Artist.
To Stand tall when others Hide. To Go Forward when others Shirk. To Speak Out when others are Silent. To Defend those who cannot defend themselves. To have a sense of pride in integrity and responsibility.
In the last 30 years of my life I have seen Honor disappear from our Schools, Jobs, Sports, and for the most vulnerable among us: the Elders and the Children.
Unfortunately, a lot of people in this country started hiding instead of standing tall. Selfishness creeped in, more into themselves instead of helping others. Focused on electronics instead of people.
What can we do to change this? As a Martial Arts Instructor, I truly believe training in martial arts can do wonders for children, teens, and adults. It can set the foundation for the person we become in the future causing a chain reaction of positive example.
