Promotions are received for jobs well done. People won’t receive promotions if they don’t put forth effort or give their time to make things happen. The transition from one level to the next takes a special drive it takes passion beyond what was expected previously. To receive a promotion indicates recognition of a job well done and expectation that this job will continue to be furthered. After the promotion is received the amount of work put forth must be more intense and focused on a single goal.

            In achieving a higher belt in MMA it shows the progrexssion toward my ultimate goal of one day being a black belt and the best martial artist possible. In the promo I need to become more focused in my goal of the black belt. A black belt in karate, judo, or any martial art form is the highest form of recognition that a person has mastered that system. A coach is vital in training the student to become the best they can be, no matter how far they want to go. The coach gives praise, corrects problem areas and has the ability to give the promotion to the student. The sensei has the unique responsibility of encouraging the student while not tearing them down and stripping them of confidence.

“I fall in love with people’s passion, the way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love and the way they fill with light.”Image
