• Always encourage your children and be supportive however they may perform.
  • Try not to compare your children’s progress with other students and point it out to them. Understand the fact that every student is different and progresses at a different rate.
  • Do not interrupt or allow children to interrupt their martial arts training. You choose martial arts for your child to build character, learn discipline, responsibility and respect which are building stones of life and will guide your children when making decisions which will matter in the long run. Therefore, taking martial arts away as a disciplinary measure should never be a consideration.
  • Teach your children to be responsible and to take care of their uniforms, belts and sparring gears.
  • Encourage your children to follow the 5 Tenets at home and any other place outside the dojang. We must work together reinforcing these rules for them to be effective in the long run.
  • Respect the Instructor who is teaching the class and the students who are there to learn by keeping your conversations to a minimum in a low voice with other parents in the viewing area. A noisy viewing area distracts the students and makes them loose focus.
