Martial Arts Classes Teaches Leadership

Douvris Leadership

What is the key to being a great leader? It is knowing how to be one, of course. The DOUVRIS martial arts classes allow teens to join our leadership team so they can receive the experience of being a leader in life. Our young leaders are taught how to manage a class of younger belt students, giving them hands-on experience in knowing how to influence people. Our leadership program also gives them an opportunity to practice public speaking by talking to the class and completing demonstrations.  The leadership skills taught are essential in today’s work-place so that they have the confidence to excel in a career that requires leadership.

DOUVRIS Martial Arts strongly believes in developing the character of our students along with the martial arts skills we teach them. The Striving for Excellence character development program was developed with over 30 years experience in teaching children respect, confidence and self-discipline. Striving for Excellence gives our members the opportunity to discuss, practice, and apply character development traits in their lives. The program includes a Karate Kids Workbook and a Karate Tykes Colouring book which children complete each month at home. The lessons outlined in the workbook are designed to accompany the “Word of the Month” which instructors discuss with students during each class.

The Word of the Month for March is

Respect

Respect is one of the words most often associated with karate, and for a good reason. We care about it a great deal.

Karate practitioners are taught to bow when they enter a dojo, when they greet their Sensei, when they start working with a partner and so on. This not only shows respect for the long tradition of the art and for all the practitioners who came before us, but it is also a great way to acknowledge the wisdom and knowledge that our instructors share with us. We bow to offer thanks for the opportunity to learn from each other.
