“I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”– Gandhi


Throughout your journey in learning martial arts, many important qualities are developed in establishing a "Black Belt" attitude .  Humitlity or being humble is being courteously respectful of others, recognising that everyone is equal.  A humble person doesn'e think they are better than anyone else, they don't brag about themselves, nor do they show off.  Having humility is the opposite of being aggressive, arrogant, baostful or vain.

Humility in martial arts is invaluable - as there is always something to learn, relearn or improve on in your skills and training.  A humble person knows you're only as good as your last training session!  

Honourable, well-respected black belts are humble martial artists, that are considerate of others and help others achieve their goals.\

We are so proud to have humble students and Black Belt Instructors at TSDA!
