Things to Think About...

Published by Achievement Consulting/Moody Management Inc.

How do YOU Rate? Part II - Discipline


Board Break Clinic



Last time we discussed Life Skills and how well you do. While thats an important product we provide, the real product is disciplined martial arts. Discipline is the primary thing that separates us from other child activities. Not as a Life Skill but that our classes require and instill discipline. Our classes should never be romper room they should be disciplined.

You may THINK you have disciplined classes...




Spring Nationals

I didnt do: Dates or WEEK 6 titles Records or YEA FOR Upcoming Events

I recently taught a short version of the Tiny Tigers seminar at Spring Nationals and I asked the group who thought their classes were disciplined. Most of the group raised their hand. Then I asked who had been taught how to teach a disciplined class... and just a few raised their hand. OK - so maybe they sort of learned by on-the-job training? Well, when after I reviewed a system for discipline - that was the number one thing on their evaluations of the seminar that they wanted to change in their academy. After working on the how of discipline, they left realizing that they had a lot of room for improvement. Like Life Skills, I have observed our instructors fall into these categories - in this case I will let you know how I identify discipline problems. (fixing them is a whole seminar). If the instructor is... Weak Parents will NOT see value in our classes I can easily identify when I teach a group. Some clues: The kids dont know where to go, They are doing different things, The parents dont know where their bags go. The Stars are not done right by kids or parents. The front area doesnt have everything in it. The kids move slow (a result of not being sure). Where are you? Rate yourself? What do you have to do to improve it?

How Disciplined are Your Classes? Rate Yourself...

Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. -Warren G. Bennis

You see, if the class is weak it isnt because they are kids. This isnt because they are white belts. This is because we have not done OUR JOB and defined what the kids should be doing the what and then consistently reinforced the how. If we need a seminar at your school on how to easily create a disciplined environment (thats fun too), lets get it scheduled!

Charity Work... Part II

OK - If it isnt working (working means you have at least 5 members from the promotion we mentioned last time), check the following in your Academy: Is there a BIG Thermometer saying The ACADEMY wants to raise $2,000 for the charity? DO all of the instructors know you are doing it? Do they know how great the charity is? Do you have flyers (on the charity only) in the PWA? Have you been giving them flyers (ours) to hand out at work or at church or.... Is it announced EVERY Class? How many businesses are handing out your flyers... are they out of them? Are they kidrelated businesses Have you given out at least 10,000 flyers?

Champions arent made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. . -Muhammad Ali
