KOHAI (Eager Student)
The practice of Martial Arts is deep in tradition and teaches us many terms, titles and customs that have been proven to lay a solid foundation for becoming a strong Black Belt Champion. One of the most important benefits of training is the powerful relationship and bond between a student and their teacher. (SENSEI)
Martial Arts relationships always begin and end with respect. It is an age old custom to always show respect and appreciation toward each other. The term KOHAI, to us, means eager student, someone who strives to be their best and demonstrates a lot of enthusiasm toward their Martial Arts training.
Karate Kids should always show an eager attitude at the dojo, at home and at school. This positive and excited mindset will bring out their best in all areas.
Adult Peak Performers should show their eagerness in the dojo, as well as in their professional and personal lives. It’s a great way to bring out the best in yourself and others. It’s better to be the person that brightens the room when you enter-versus when you exit.
Black Belt Champions at all ages, stages and levels should forever remain a KOHAI. It’s one thing to get excited about your training, staying excited for the long haul will bring you to greatness in all areas of life.
