Within each belt test, our HapKiDo students experience an overwhelming flow of thankfulness by the time they achieve a new colored belt. They had just seen all of their hard work paying off, they greet their instructors and family/friends afterwards, and there’s this celebratory expression of joy that is seen on all faces. For these students, passing a HapKiDo Karate test is an example of happiness that they will remember in the long run.
A martial art program like Choe’s HapKiDo can add happiness to any individual’s life because the classes guide all through actions that promote good health:
3) Socializing with family and friends
4) Relieving stress
5) Developing self-respect
Having a positive outlet that encourages all of these practices can be the difference between a bad and a good week. They all produce certain levels of happiness, and they definitely help people sleep better at night. Especially if there is something to always look forward to throughout the week, life suddenly become enjoyable!
