or their belts, mouth guard or Gi (uniform) - or even for his or her gradings or championships.
So, if you are not paying for Karate, what are you paying for?
The Value of Karate
You pay for those moments when your child becomes so tired they feel like quitting but don't.
You pay for the opportunity that your child can have and will have to make life-long friendships.
You pay for the chance that they may have amazing instructors and coaches that will teach them that Karate is not just about technique and fighting, but about LIFE.
You pay for your child to learn to be disciplined.
You pay for your child to learn to take care if his/her body.
You pay for your child to learn to work with others and to be a proud, supportive, kind and respectful Karate practioner.
You pay for your child to learn to deal with disappointment when they don't get that belt or medal they hoped for, despite having practiced a thousand times, but still gets up and is determined to do his BEST next time.
You pay for your child to learn to make and accomplish goals.
You pay for your child to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.
You pay so that your child can be in the dojo instead of in front of a screen.
In short, you don't pay for Karate, you pay for the opportunities that Karate provides your child to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their life, and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others.
