Martial arts show of “Commanders Daughters”

Etiquette is a lost art: Over my decades in the martial arts, I have seen many changes occur, including observing the changes in the character of children as they become adults. Teaching the martial arts has also changed, as it has been passed down from instructor to instructor through the ages. At one time the martial arts were a pure art, where money had little importance or value compared to the integrity and reputation of a black belt instructor. A black belt’s reputation was his credentials, which were recognized and respected by his peers. But, as years passed and the founders and pioneers of the arts aged and took a back seat to the more aggressive and newer instructors, the newcomers found that a great deal of money could be made owning, teaching and perhaps franchising a martial arts school.
