According to a dictionary definition, a leader is a person who leads or commands a group or an organization. Did you know most qualities of a leader are acquired as a child or teenager? The past few years there has been a very prominent emphasis on how effective this leadership role is on a student in a school environment, but this valuable opportunity can extend farther than just the classroom – students in leadership roles are benefitted just as equally in the dojo!
Students involved in martial arts such as jiu jitsu, taekwondo, and karate already have a major advantage in acquiring skills for life due to their martial arts training, but by being put into a leadership position they can bring their skill set to the next level. Students are capable of so many things, and can take on leadership roles that go far beyond simply helping their owner track attendance or manage prospects.

Making Proper Behavior a Habit
As parents, we start teaching our toddlers to say “please” and “thank you” very early on. And luckily, once they enter a Songahm classroom as an ATA Tiger or Karate Kid, they learn more about showing respect toward their peers and adults. Though the children recite the words, it is important that as they grow and mature they also develop a deeper understanding of why manners are imperative to having success in all aspects of life.
Defining Communication – The Key to Success for Kids and Adults
Posted: April 24, 2018
Communication is “the link between the world and me.” Communication is how we relate to ourselves and everything around us. It is so important that the success of a society depends on how well it communicates. The word communication comes from the word “common”, which means “equal.” This means that in order to communicate with each other, we must find common ground. To ensure this, our communication must be seen, heard and felt.
Communication can be verbal or nonverbal. Visual communication has to do with the way we use body language to deliver our message. Verbal communication refers to the way we sound: the tone of our voice, what words we make sound important, and how our voice changes when we speak. Physical communication involves appropriately touching someone while we speak with them.
We can also communicate with ourselves. It takes a great amount of practice to communicate with ourselves, teaching ourselves to grow into the successful people we want to be.

3rd & 4th Level: Belief in Society & the Universe
Society – Human beings’ beliefs are, in a lot of cases, a result of their surroundings. Society certainly affects our beliefs. There are a number of limiting beliefs in our surroundings, and there are also many empowering ones. We must distinguish between them, rejecting the limiting ones and embrace those which make us better. It’s very important that we believe in our society and contribute to changing its negative values and strengthening its positive ones.
Universe – It is important to understand that the universe is not you, but rather you are an important part of the universe. We must also understand that there are many different rules that make the universe work. When we understand these rules, we will understand the natural results of our attitudes, thoughts and actions.
