ESPECIALLY CHILDREN.  IN TODAY’S SOCIETY IT IS ALL TO EASY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE ALONG WITH THOSE WHO DO NOT POSSESS STRONG FAMILY VALUES TO STRAY OFF THE PATH OF GOODNESS. IT IS EXPECTED OF A PERSON OF QUALITY, ESPECIALLY A TRUE MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTOR TO BECOME A BETTER PERSON EACH DAY, AND HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE ALONG THE WAY. INFLATED EGOS, JEALOUSY AND SELF-FULFILLMENT ARE NOT PART OF ANY REAL TEACHER’S WEAPONRY. ONE MUST LEARN TO CONTROL, DISCIPLINE AND ORGANIZE ONESELF, OR FACE DEFEAT IN LIFE FROM YOUR GREATEST AND MOST DANGEROUS OPPONENT………YOURSELF
