I know, if you’re old enough you just sang that it in your head. 🙂

Respect is also a critical attribute of relationship, society, team building, leadership and success- and, as critically, there seems to be a shortage of supply.


Fortunately, Respect is also one of the Blackbelt Superpowers that we develop at Krav Maga Martial Arts, my leadership development academy that also happens to teach the most practical self defense.

It’s the one we’ll be teaching on this week in classes.


We teach two critical types of Respect at KMMA, both critical and both in low supply…

Respect for self and respect for others.


It’s the prior, what to say when we talk to ourselves, and specifically how to answer that negative voice in our head- the one that tells us what we can’t do and why that we’ll be talking about.

Students will get the lesson live all week.

I’ll record it too, so you can watch the video and share it with others you care about who may need to hear it…


And, if you aren’t getting those lessons live yet, rather you need them for yourself, your kids or your whole family, we sure would love to help you get started.

Just visit or call 813-948-4844.


And, students, we’ll see you in class!
