JLBC Building Character Through Martial Arts
What makes a martial artist genuinely great? Is it the talent, the degree of proficiency? Wrong. It's all about being a better person.

You physically train, but there's a personal development involved as well. Martial arts instructors will get to serve as role models. They wish to bring out the talent in each student and train them to their full potential. The role of an instructor is many- they make the martial arts environment conducive for learning, plus they set up new and exciting challenges for the students to be engaged in. Suffice to say; the instructors care about the students they teach martial arts to!
