How to Choose a Martial Arts School : How to Learn Life Lessons at Martial Arts School


Hi, I’m Mike Payne, owner of Academy for the
Martial Arts, speaking on behalf of Expert Village on the topic of what to look for in
a Martial Arts school. “Right, that’s setting a really good example and that’s what leaders
do is set really good examples for us to follow. So the people I like in the front of the line
are people that set a good example, not just some of the time but all of the time.” I always
tell my students I want you to apply what you learn here at home and at school and the
parents appreciate it because we’re reinforcing the values that the parents want in their
kids and we want them to get better grades, better conduct and get along better with kids
at school . Learn about conflict resolution. When students don’t feel like they have options
on how to defend themselves, a lot of times they do get into fights just because they
don’t know what else to do. I’ve worked with a lot of police officers and they say either
I get abused or the other person gets abused because I just don’t know what else to do.
So, the more options the kids have in how to resolve conflict and how to defend themselves
to better students, now can draw from the other Martial Arts styles and really get the
best of each style, instead of only learning only one particular style and having lots
of weak areas.
