Parents take note – there are three aspects of kung-fu training that enabled our students to do well in life. These aspects revolve around being “flexibly rooted”. Through the years, the school has seen firsthand these three things enable our younger students with the knowledge and discipline to become highly competent and confident adults.
- Consistent and enduring training. This includes not just a physical level, but also a discriminating use of time and experience that reflect in their pursuit of education and work ethic.
- Awareness through self respect. As they learned to push themselves and achieve their desired goals, they grew to respect not only others and their kung- fu training , but they grew to respect themselves. A sense of confidence and ability that they learned to apply in a full range of different circumstances. A learned habit they would call on time and again in hard times as well as good to know they can accomplish anything because they persevered in their kung fu training.
- Through self effort they learned self-discipline and self-efficacy. Nothing was given to them – they had to earn it through toil and persistence. And in the process they learned never to give up, no matter how hard it was.
Throughout the history of this school, the use of these kung-fu principles have not only come to bare in our young students future academic and professional careers, but also in their personal sense of themselves. Whether it be with their wives, kids, friends, work associates, or strangers, they stand flexibly rooted!
