Core Values


Respecting someone – especially yourself – means valuing that person. During your martial arts training you show respect for your partners by treating them as you want to be treated; working together to push each other to grow and learn. The more you train together, the more you appreciate their abilities and what they bring out in you.


Mastering the martial arts – as with anything in life – requires constant repetition, or the “habit” of practice. Habits are only developed through focused behavior towards a goal. Just by consistently coming to class, you develop the habit of consistency, your martial arts skills increase and eventually, the habit of discipline.


Humility is about being thankful for how unique and valuable you are as a person, and understanding that you have a responsibility to share your gifts with others. The greater the martial artist, the greater the responsibility to pass on the knowledge to others. A true master realizes that it is not about the individual; it is about what the individual stands for.
