This short Karate BLACK BELT STORY from Mr. Derek DeVries – is about the honor roll (in 2nd grade!)…
I have been able to focus better at school. I made the honor roll this quarter. I am increasing my skills. I feel better about myself because I can do more things now.
Thanks Mr. DeVries!
We KNOW that Karate improves confidence and we also know that kids with higher self esteem get better grades… This is shown again and again with children who start martial arts and complete a program through (typically at least 2nd degree) black belt that their grades rise and their satisfaction with school increase! They’re smarter in school and it’s more fun!
