Loyalty & It's Significance in Martial Arts
Loyalty is one of the most important character traits everyone should have. In all areas of life, whether personal or professional, loyalty is priceless and a top priority in every kind of relationship. In martial arts, loyalty is taught in many different ways. Staying loyal to your martial arts school and your instructor is important in your martial arts journey, as it allows you to develop steadiness and consistency. The concept of loyalty is something that children should pick up at an early age and develop through the years. Our martial art programs at AKI Miami help teach this life lesson as a core value and one of the 7 core principles/philosophies we instill in every student.
Another form of loyalty is to stay true to ourselves, discover what makes us unique and show others who we are with no fear of judgement. In this manner, loyalty also means respecting yourself and discovering the power within.
