 August Life Skill: Friendship!
“Being a good friend”

At Peak, we believe in building Friendships and being a good friend to others. It’s important to have and be a good friend to others, this helps prevent kids from becoming bullies, and will allow them to stand up for themselves, and their friends, when faced with a bully.
One of the many ways that we teach them to be good friends, is through encouragement. Encouraging others when they feel down, having a tough time, or just need a little bit of support is a great way to pick someone up! Saying something as little as, “Good job,” can turn someone’s day around.
Another way to show friendship, is by being friendly. It’s important to be friendly with everyone you meet. Smiling, being cheerful, sharing something, taking an interest in what someone is saying/doing are great ways to be friendly.
Showing respect is another key part of being a good friend. You must show respect to not only them as a person, but also their belongings. Talking down to a friend, breaking or losing their things, being rude or mean to them is disrespectful. Instead, trying building them up through positive thoughts and encouragement, taking care of their belongings if you borrow or use them, and being nice/polite to them.
Finally, at the end of every class, we try to go over what the Life Skill of the month is, and we always have them provide examples. We also assign them simple homework in which they have to share next time in class. By doing this, it causes them to think about the Life Skill more, and not just in class.

Every day in class, we ask them what the Life Skill of the month is (this month it is Friendship), what does Friendship mean, and we ask them in what ways can they show friendship in and outside of class.

His Success Story:

“I think my story begins with a personal quest to prove to myself that my perseverance and determination would be enough to transform myself into whomever I decided that I wanted to become.  Most people that know me today do not know that I grew up completely unathletic and filled with fear.  I was the chess club, debate team, theater arts, type of nerd that was frequently (as in daily) bullied for really as long as I could remember.  Unlike others, being constantly bullied and often times terrorized motivated me.  That motivation first inspired me to join the Marine Corps as a skinny, weak kid and address my own fears head on.  I did well and challenged myself to run faster, shoot better, and be stronger than every person I could find.  I got fanatical about the gym and gained about 43 pounds of muscle over several years.  After the Marines I went to college and discovered my first MMA gym.  K.O. Sport Gym in Austin, Texas.  These were the ancient days of MMA gyms in which a blue belt was treated like a brown belt of today and basically you learned by surviving.  My first day striking I was invited to spar with one of the instructors and was very nearly knocked out in the second round, I don’t even think I had a mouthpiece yet.  Of course that just fueled my determination.  Within my first few months I was slammed by a guy escaping my triangle choke (the old school way) and it worked…  My shoulder was separated and I had my first of two shoulder surgeries.  Words of wisdom from my coach…  “Man, you should’ve released that triangle…”  I continued my training primarily because I felt that stopping proved every person that ever doubted me on anything as being correct.  So, I persevered.  I was fortunate enough to eventually find my way to Peak Performance MMA.  I have been involved in the martial arts for around 15 years with the last 10 being at Peak.  I feel that my greatest success was using the martial arts as one of several tools to improve every other aspect of my life.  The martial arts now allow me the opportunity to spread my knowledge, experience, and passion to others.”
