Tip: Leave Your Attitude at the Door
on APR. / 05 / 2011 | 0 comments
All too often things happen throughout our day that emotionally impact us. Life is full of emotional issues. Some make us mad, some make us sad, some just frustrate us. In any case, our day can very easily show up in the way we lead a class. Our patience is shorter. Our voices are louder. Even when we think we have it under control, it doesn’t mean your class does not see it. Use your bad days as good training days for your other black and brown belts. Let them lead class or part of it. They need the practice, and it would not hurt for you to take a break. Use the time for you; concentrate on your skills and focus on your own martial arts needs. The physiological effects of the extra activity will also help you deal with your day.
And encourage your students to do this as well. Help them focus on Tae Kwon Do and forget the issues of the day.
