We begin the 2019 with new morals of the dojo. Each moral will provide us with a theme for the month.
1. Respect 2. Honesty 3. Integrity 4. Humility 5. Contentment 6. Awareness
Respect is the first moral because it is a fundamental part of martial arts training. We often tell our students that a dojo cannot function without mutual respect between all parties.
Showing respect to someone means you act in a way that shows you care about his or her feelings and well-being. To treat someone with respect means to treat him or her as you would want to be treated.
Besides respecting other people and places we will also talk to students about self-respect. Self-respect is essentially behaving with honor and dignity and having pride and confidence in yourself. Self-respect is not contingent on success or failure but rather a notion of yourself relating to your fundamental humanity. We cannot buy self-respect or obtain it from other people; we have to build it in ourselves by doing the right thing.
Self-respect is also about standing up for yourself when someone is disrespecting you or treating you poorly. Removing someone from your life who doesn’t respect you can be a hugely important demonstration of self-respect.
