The Duck or Eagle
Hey, parents. My name is Denny Strecker. And I’m the chief instructor at Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts, where for the last 27 years, we have been teaching kids karate classes to become better leaders for tomorrow’s world. I was thinking, that a lot of times when we talk about martial arts, parents think about the punches and the kicks and really don’t understand the depth of what it is that we do. So I wanted to share a quick story with you today, which is The Duck or The Eagle.
When a storm starts to come in, a duck is able to look up and see that the storm is about to happen. So it just kind of hunkers down and waits out the storm, and whatever happened happened. If it’s a torrential downpour, if there’s hail, if there’s high winds, it just kind of deals with it as the storm comes through. But an eagle is able to foresee the storm coming. So what an eagle does is it flies up to the highest point that it can find. That way it’s above the storm, then it flies over the storm to avoid all of the bad weather and looks for a safe place to land on the other side.
That got me thinking, that’s exactly what we do with our ninjas. We teach our ninjas to become leaders. So they are becoming eagles. They are able to foresee problems coming up in their life. And they’re able to make a better choice on how to avoid that problem. instead of always being reactive like a duck and just seeing what happens in life and whatever life brings them. By becoming an eagle, our ninjas are becoming better leaders, so they are making better choices, so therefore they are going to lead better lives.
We would love to show you exactly how it works. If you’re interested in seeing exactly how this would work for your ninja, we have a two week trial for $25 unlimited classes, so you can come in and experience the program. Check it out and see exactly how it works for your ninja.
