Open Mat (the inside story)
At open mat the instructors and I work with each student in a one on one setting. This is not a structured martial arts class. Students come and go during a three hour window and demonstrate their skill sets to earn tips toward their next belt. For kids who need a Lil more practice it becomes a short private lesson and they receive stickers for their efforts. The tips on their belt mark their progress. However the amount of stickers in their Personal Success Journal marks their perseverance.
Each one of those stickers represents a small setback or defeat and more so, a non-quitting spirit as they return to try again the following week.
