Knowledge is the greatest gift


Bruce Lee was one of my heroes growing up.

Besides the martial arts, Bruce and I have a couple of other things in common; we were both Philosophy majors in college, and we both agree that knowledge is the best gift a parent can give a child.

Like Bruce said, material things will wear out and fade away but knowledge will last a lifetime.

This is especially true of the type of knowledge we develop at Krav Maga Martial Arts.

A KMMA Blackbelt carries the following knowledge with he or she for the rest of their lives:

  • The Confidence that she can defend herself and others in any situation.
  • The Laws of Concentration
  • The Words of Respect
  • Leadership and Communication Skills
  • Self Direction and Goal Setting Skills
  • The Knowledge of how to remain physically and mentally fit
  • How To Make Friends
  • How To Persevere Through Challenges and Accomplish Difficult tasks
  • Conflict Resolutiokn Skills
  • Team Building Skills
  • Physical & Mental Balance
  • Coorindation and Athletic attributes
  • Speed and Power
  • How To Teach
  • The Philosophies of Success

and much, much more. These are just what came to me first.


The bottom line is that when you enroll your child at Krav Maga Martial Arts, you are investing in them with knowledge that will empower them at school, in relationships, at work and for the rest of their lives!


Can you think of a better gift you could give your child this Holiday season?
