At Farrell’s U.S. Martial Arts, we follow the Tenets of Taekwondo. These are values we work to instill in our students both inside and outside of the dojang (school). One of these values is “indomitable spirit.”
What does indomitable spirit mean? Simply stated, to rise above and persevere.
Our world can be cruel and unjust, judgmental and biased, vindictive and scary. We see all-too-often instances of bullying played out on social media and heard through the school grapevine.
As a parent, it’s our responsibility to teach our children how to handle themselves in any situation – how to be resilient. Of course, we would all hope our children will never have to deal with a bully, but life happens and we can’t control that. We can, however, teach our children how to accept it and rise above.
