Respect in Karate

All of our students at Perth Karate are taught to respect the older and wiser members of our community. Our students learn that respect is earned and not a right and the importance of being a good role model. Martial arts classes in Perth teach children to be aware of their attitude and actions at all times.

Respect also called esteem is a positive feeling or action shown towards someone or something considered important, or held in high esteem or regard; it conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable qualities; and it is also the process of honouring someone by exhibiting care, concern, or consideration for their needs or feelings.

Some people may earn the respect of individuals by assisting others or by playing important social roles. In many cultures, individuals are considered to be worthy of respect until they prove otherwise. Being silent is another misinterpreted sign of respect. Often, people think that if someone doesn’t talk to them, it means they are giving them attitude, but in reality, the silent one doesn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable by saying something.
