During our lessons this week, we will talk about the process of Sharing knowledge with each other. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.” — the Dalai Lama (Author, leader of the Tibetan Buddhist community in exile)
Knowledge sharing: An activity through which knowledge is exchanged among people, friends, families, communities or organizations.
Sharing our knowledge is an important way for us all to participate in learning. Our instructors share the things we need to learn and grow into the martial artists we want to be — becoming a black belt, and then going beyond. We can do the same thing by taking the time to share our knowledge, experiences, and lessons we have learned with our fellow students when that will help them. Sharing something with a training partner can help point them in the right direction, or avoid making a mistake that we once made. When our goal is to earn our black belt, we can help each other achieve this goal when we share it — we work together to help each other reach this goal. We can have a significant impact on the lives of the people around us when we share with them the things we know, and the lessons we’ve learned.
- What is something you know about karate that you have shared with one of your training partners?
- What do you think the best way would be to share your knowledge of karate with once of your friends?
