Did we lose our manners?

Yes sir, no ma'am , Mr,and Mrs seem like a thing of the past now. Think about it when was the last time you referred to an older person by Mr or Mrs. People want to be called by their first name these days. If you make the mistake a referring to them in the proper way it is actually an insult now. You can even find this attitude in some martial arts circles. The art of RESPECT is just as vital to a martial artist as the art of kicking and punching. So what are some ways for you to practice this art, I thought you would never ask. Well for starters you could:

Greet your instructor as soon as you walk in the door
Refer to all Dans or Degrees by their proper title
Say yes sir and yes ma'am

Disrespect has no place in the martial arts community.
