I will learn that I am amazing in my physical abilities. I am going to grow up healthy, happy and ready. Sensei will teach me to physically succeed in everything I pursue.
At Aikido Center:
I will learn that I am capable of handling any conflict and that no one will succeed in bullying me. Sensei will teach me that I must be able to defend myself first before I can confidently walk away from a fight.
At Aikido Center:
I will learn that I am a leader in my own right and that I should take advantage of any opportunity to “Lead the Way.” Sensei will teach me to first be a great example for others and help them achieve their dreams. Then I can take the reins of my own life and accomplish all my dreams and plans by. I will be a part of something bigger than myself.
At Aikido Center:
I will learn that I am charged with being a hero to my fellow man. Sensei will teach me that “In order to have a friend you have to be a friend.” I am going to be the best friend ever!
At Aikido Center:
I will learn that I am going to have fun while learning very important life principles. Sensei will teach me the priority of working hard before we get to play hard.
