Defining DISCIPLINE: To obey what is right.

This means to practice good habits. But, what are good habits?

Simply put: they are behaviors that make us better people.

This Fall 2018 session at Lakes Martial Arts we will be talking about DISCIPLINE.

It all begins with obedience. When we are children, we must obey our parents, teachers, and mentors. They are the ones responsible to show us the right path.

Later in life, we must learn to rely on our self-discipline. It’s when we no longer need to be told what to do, or how to do it. We need to be disciplined with self-control… controlling our emotions, rather than have them control us.

Examples include:

  • Punctuality. Being on time. Disciplined people are punctual and have the ability to use time to their advantage.

  • Goals. Disciplined people are driven by their goals.

  • Focus. Disciplined people focus on what is most important.

These are the topics we will be focusing on this session!
