https://www.iainabernethy.co.uk/ Discipline and respect are often seen as positive benefits of martial arts training. However, in certain circumstances both “discipline” and “respect” can have negative consequences for the individual and adversely affect their ability to protect themselves and to set effective personal boundaries. Furthermore, “discipline” and “respect” can also be misused by unscrupulous instructors in a way that makes for an unhealthy and damaging training environment. In this video I discuss self-discipline vs enforced discipline, the important differences between courtesy and respect, and how respect should always me something earned over time. I hope you enjoy the video, and it provides some food for thought.
