Great instructors. Patient, knowledgeable and hard working for our kids. I don't know how they do it. My son has come SO far in just 16 months. I'm amazed!

We love Inspiration Martial Arts! My son has attended under Mr. & Mrs. Reeves for the last year. During that time I have seen a tremendous improvement not only in his martial arts technique but in his focus and discipline at home. I very much appreciate the emphasis on values that reinforce what we teach in our family.

The Life Skill that Empowers You and Others 

When you look at the Leadership life skills, one stands out for being important—not just in your own Songahm journey— but it also affects those around you.  That life skill is RESPECT.  “It’s not what you say; it’s what you do.” There are many levels to respect, so here are some ways you can incorporate this life skill in all areas of your life to make a positive impact in your life and in those around you. 

Having self-respect. 

Having respect for yourself is a powerful tool in having respect for others. Taking care of yourself in every way possible and giving value to your decisions shows a level of appreciation that spreads to all levels of your life. 

Showing respect for others.

We live in a beautiful world with a lot of diversity.  At times, that means having a difference of opinion.  Having the ability to respect others by accepting differences and showing consideration is one of the strongest, most useful qualities a person can possess.

Respect for you family.

We may not always agree with our family members, but being able to show respect in all situations is crucial to coexistence.  That doesn’t mean you always have to like what your older brother does, but it means you can always find a way to accept differences and move forward.

Showing respect in social norms.

This one may sound tricky, but it’s about showing respect for the general rules that govern us as a people.  Being on time, having care for other people’s belongings, and listening instead of talking over others are all forms of social respect. 

Have respect for nature.

We share this world with fellow man, animals, plants, bodies of water, etc.  Making efforts to preserve our world by recycling and making environmentally friendly decisions is a way to respect that with which we are blessed.

 

Quite simply, respect is a two-way street—you get what you give.  As ATA leaders, we should strive to set the example and create a world where mutual respect is easily understood and exhibited.  Challenge yourself to show more respect in your daily life.  Chances are, you will see it returned ten-fold.
