Martial Arts Instructor Shows Us What a Fantastic Mentor Looks Like
Karate instructor Shärath Jason Wilson taught his student a valuable lesson that he’s going to carry with him for the rest of his life.
While attempting to break a board during a test, the student named Bruce began to cry. He explained that he found it more difficult to break the board with his left hand. Instead of admonishing his student, Instructor Wilson spoke to him about the difficulties he would face in the future and that tears are acceptable in the face of adversity.
He also added that the value of crying enables us order to work through emotion and rise above it. It’s a fantastic lesson in accepting what is normally viewed as weakness in society and the importance of never giving up.
