The Fundamentals of Leadership at KarateBuilt Martial Arts Part 1 

How to Learn the Fundamentals of Leadership at KarateBuilt Martial Arts – Part 1!

Have you ever heard the expression ” He’s a natural-born leader? ”

This is one of those phrases that, in reality, is more fiction than fact.

Leadership qualities are developed “after birth” through the decisions we make and the decisions that are made for us in childhood.

These decisions influence which people we choose to follow, which ultimately shapes our leadership abilities.

Therefore, in order to become a great leader, you must first learn how to become a good follower. To become a good follower, you must carefully select your role models and mentors.

No one can choose these people for you. These people will be the leaders who will shape your character and ultimately teach you how to be a great leader

One of our primary missions at KarateBuilt Martial Arts is to provide our students with towering role models, which are productive, powerful, positive examples of a clean, healthy lifestyle, setting and attaining significant goals, and developing an unshakable sense of self-respect!
