HKA Six “Selfs”
Self Discipline – Doing what you have to do before doing what you want to do. It is important to fulfill your obligations before pursuing your pleasures.
Self Respect – Learning to like yourself for who you are so that, in turn, you can learn to like others for who they are. To treat yourself with respect is also to take care of yourself and your body. Also, always follow the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated.
Self Control – Self-control means being in command of your emotions and your actions at all times. It means not letting your anger or fear cause you to do or say something that is harmful or hurtful. It also means being aware of your body and what it is doing.
Self Confidence – Believe in your training and your abilities. Know that you can be successful. To be self-confident means being proud of yourself without putting down others.
Self Defense – Protecting yourself and your loved ones only when pain or threat of pain exists. In the martial arts, you do not throw the first strike. However, you need to be prepared in case someone else does.
Self Awareness – At all times, you should know what is around you. You also need to know what is inside of you. By being self-aware, you will be better prepared to deal with everything in life. You will also be able to do the things you need to do to improve. The martial arts can help us become more self-aware in many ways.
