Parking Etiquette

After Karate training, the students and I walk down to the parking lot, where sometimes we chat before heading home. I have a student. Over the years I have noticed that if we get in our cars at the same time, he will always wait for me to leave first. He is showing courtesy even in the parking lot.

Karate is not just what you do in the dojo. What you do in the dojo should really just be the tip of a very large iceberg.

And don't forget that we don't only show courtesy to our Karate instructors and seniors. We should be respectful to our parents, elder family members, co-workers, fellow students, and people in general. Karate applies to all aspects of daily life.
