Amazing Fighting Spirit Melissa!

video

Citizen Schools and the H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts student Melissa puts all of her heart into everything that she does! I am very proud of her, as well as all of the students. Today though, Melissa has earned my respect on yet another level she showed her true Spirit and what an AMAZING FIGHTING SPIRIT IT IS!


One of our Eighth Graders, Justin, a student much bigger and stronger than Melissa had to try breaking the same board twice before he was able to do it. Melissa has acted as a true champion not because she took on one of the toughest challenges and failed but because of what she said to me after she tried her best. Melissa said she now has a goal to reach for... I feel sorry for that board when Melissa squares off with it again!


By not giving up, trying twice and only reluctantly moving to breaking a thinner board upon my instruction, Melissa has learned one of the toughest and most valuable lessons that she could. Never quit! Never give up! Set your goals and work hard to achieve them! This applies to everything in your life not just the Martial Arts. We can all learn a lot and be inspired by Melissa's actions.


A truly great job and incredible Spirit!

  3. All of you did an amazing job!

    A little practice, actually a lot, the right form/proper technique and now, as you have all experienced first hand, you can break through the boards with little effort!

    WAY TO GO H.E.A.R.T. MARTIAL ARTS TEAM!!!!!!!
