In martial arts, respect is learned before it is earned. Martial arts is a discipline in which teaches respect to anyone who walks through the front door of a martial art school. Not only do you learn self-defense, but you build character, increase self-worth and self-beliefs, and learn respect. Respect for yourself and also towards others.
The first stage of respect in martial arts begins between the headmaster / owner and the student on the first day of class. The influence of respect between the instructor and student is highly regarded, as the student looks up to the instructor in each demonstration of the exercises taught between the two. The more the instructor motivates, inspires, and teaches the student, the more the respect is learned and earned – from the beginning stages of a white belt rank up to a black belt rank.
