What Is A Life Skill School?
How is our academy a Life Skill school? Our coaches use martial arts as a tool to teach Life Skills. Other schools say they teach Life skills, but… they really just teach a sport martial arts class. They teach the blocks, punches, kicks, Sport Sparring, et… And then MAYBE they sit around for a bit and get a lecture from somebody reading off a clipboard “About” a life skill. But, seriously, that’s a just a sport with a talk about a life skill for a minute or so.
Our program incorporates the life skill in every minute of class. For example, this cycle, we’re talking about Respect. So everything we did in class last night, tonight, and tomorrow night revolves around Respect.
The Life Skill coach will ask the kids,
“Who can show me how a person with Self Respect does a push up?”
“Who can show me how a person with Respect for themselves and their martial art throws a … Side Kick?… Or Horse Stance?”
Each technique that we use is infused with the life skill Respect in every class for the whole month. Then, next month we’ll use the martial arts as a vehicle to teach Discipline.
For example, “Who can show me how a person with level #3 Discipline practices Jump Kick? Now show me a level #6…7… 8…9 level 10!” And Kids go nuts for it! They love it!
Lastly, in each Leadership class students will give examples Levels of each Life Skill. For instance:
1. Respect For Ourselves. How does someone show Respect for themself? Eating only good foods, exercising our bodies with martial arts and our minds with books everyday and getting to bed early so we get enough sleep.
2. Respect For Others:
The Life Skill Coach will ask the kids “Who can give me an example of showing level 10 respect to others?”
3. Respect For The Community:
A student will give an example of a high level of Respect with their community.
4. Respect For the World:
How do we show a high level of Respect to the World? Our environment. Makes You Think!
Life Skill Kids leave our academy each week with a deeper understanding of how to be better person, by mastering Respect, Discipline, Confidence, Honesty, Communication and Self Esteem.
It’s not just a Name. Life Skill is what we practice.
It’s what we teach. Life Skill is about mastering Life.
