Role of the Instructor
As a martial arts instructor, we may become an important influential person in the life of a child. When parents and martial art instructors team up and work together it creates a powerful combination that works toward the desired outcome. This is the true benefit of our program. Students will learn much more from the instructors than just the kicks and punches they teach. They will learn positive ways to think and behave.
I will teach this class as if it is the most important class I will ever teach.
I am patient and enthusiastic.
I lead by example.
