CLOSING THE DOOR!! | Amerikick - Park Slope


Recently, a mom shared that her son
has very few friends and he is totally 
ok with that.
One day, some kids rang the bell 
to find out if he wanted to come hang 
with them at the park.
He said “no thank you.” 
They proceeded to call him names. 
He just shut the door and went back to 
what he was doing.
She was worried 
for his self-esteem. 
I told her not to worry. 
He could have easily caved in 
to avoid being labeled and to win friends. 
He didn’t! He stood his ground! 
He knew what the kids did 
at the park, and he wanted no part of that. 
And obviously, he knew they were 
not his friends because friends would 
not call you names just because 
you don’t do what they do. 
This young man is quite happy 
with his own activities. 
He has friends there.
They train together; 
attend events together; 
have common goals;
basically, he was saying, 
“mom, I am ok!”
This is what the Martial Arts is about; 
building self-esteem, strong character 
discipline and self-defense; not just 
kicking and punching. 
Not many kids have this. 
If you have a child you know would 
not have just “closed the door” and 
that worries you, the Martial Arts 
is for them.
We want to make it easy for you.
