Having gratitude means to be gracious.
Martial artists understand gratitude because the teacher student relationship for a life long martial artist always demanded it, but how do we pass that trait on to future generations?
We use our abilities and resources to give back or “pay it forward” – not for compensation, or recognition, but simply to give generously because someone gave generously to us. That is what gratitude is all about. It is important that a student of the martial arts exhibits gratitude. This is how local communities and organizations will grow and flourish- when its leaders and members give graciously without expecting anything in return.
What Makes a Leader?

Although some people were born to be leaders, every single person out there can possess a certain amount of leadership in themselves. Leadership is a value, a personal quality, and skill that can be obtained. With martial arts, students are encouraged to help lower-level students reach their goals. Along the way, older students learn leadership skills and collaborative qualities that they will use the rest of their lives.
Recently, our LEADERSHIP TEAM, took it upon themselves to research local charities and from start to finish, design and implement a, "KICK-A-THON", raising over $1800 for the Interfaith Nutirition Network.
Our leaders, went out, asked for dontations, collected them , and then practiced kicking for 30 minutes straight, sweating their way to success.
