Some common etiquette to know before becoming a KP student of Martial Arts
Becoming a student of Martial Arts should not be taken lightly. There is discipline and an attitude that should be understood and accepted before you set foot in a dojo. All of the manners and etiquette of the dojo should be maintained inside and out. It is the hardest part to learn, more so than the kicking and punching, but it is the only way to live a life with a fruitful attitude.
Improve Skill Sets Learning martial arts will impact several areas of life. When you are serious about learning martial arts, you will find that you are improving in several areas of your life. Focus, memorization, discipline, goal setting, effort, confidence, and respect.
Courtesy and respect are key elements in training in martial arts How we behave is how others perceive us to be. When considering martial arts, remember the following:
Keep your ego in check. Learning a Martial Art, just like learning anything else, will have its good parts and bad parts. You will continually absorb information, from the beginner through advanced lessons, and keeping your mind open to learning will keep training fun and make it an enjoyable experience overall.
Warm up. Do not skip class warm up sessions. Warming up is not just about avoiding injury. It prepares your mind and body for the lessons to come and incorporates movements and techniques that will help improve performance.
Master basic techniques first. Advanced techniques are based on a solid mastery of the basics. Rushing through the basics, or not learning to do them properly, to get to the more advanced levels will impede development and your ability to advance to higher levels.
Be patient and focus on your educational path. Progress takes time and practice, and that is what is needed to advance through martial arts. Concentrate on learning the techniques and the development of your skills, train, and the advancements will come naturally.
Keep communication open with your instructors. Your instructors are your guides through your martial arts training. Speak with them openly and honestly when you have questions or concerns. It will help maximize your learning experience.
Relax. Take your time and move through the techniques at a natural pace. Doing so will significantly improve your ability to secure and escape positions and do better in your training overall.
