During our in-class discussion lesson this week, we will consider the relationship between courtesy and Respect. Our lesson for this week follows below:
“Karate begins and ends with courtesy and respect.” — Traditional Teaching (origin unknown)
Karate begins and ends with courtesy and respect. We remind ourselves of this when we formally bow in at the beginning of each of our lessons together, and when we formally bow out at the end.
- When someone bows to you, should you return their bow? Why?
- Can you be courteous and respectful when you need to tell someone “no”? How?
- What are some ways you can be respectful to yourself?
Please share your answers to these questions, and your thoughts about Respect, with our school community by using the form below.
