Martial Arts Manners/Dojang Protocol
The best way to influence, is by your example, be a Model of Excellence in respect.
Many years ago, a friend of mine was a bouncer at a few night clubs in Syracuse. Hanging around the night club scene, his fellow bouncers and the people that hang out at night clubs, he soon noticed his own language and his own attitude was beginning to match that scene. And he didn’t like it!
He found that the more time he spent at the night club, the more it influenced his attitude and behaviors. One day, after being involved in a violent and senseless altercation, he decided to end his bouncing days and made 100% commitment to the Martial Arts lifestyle. It was one of the best decisions he says he has ever made for himself.
That's when he began to really work on his own habits of excellence.
I share this as an example, because everyone can benefit from taking a close look at their current habits, actions, and behaviors. This, is a good habit, always looking for ways to improve and develop better habits.
