Special Winning Attitude Team

Our Special Winning Attitude Team, or S.W.A.T.  has become a vital component of our children’s martial art program.

Students who reach Blue Belt level become involved in the program. (Some students may become involved at the  Green Belt level depending on age, maturity, and Instructor recommendation.)

This program is designed to enhance the student’s practice of the Tae Kwon Do Tenets:  Modesty (Courtesy & Integrity), Perseverance, Self Control and Indomitable Spirit.

S.W.A.T. is primarily based on two categories:  Ideals and Community Service. Being involved in this team involves extra effort, awareness, and consideration. It gives students an opportunity to recognize and improve upon ideas that help themselves as well as others.

For an initial assignment, students applying to the program must choose three of the S.W.A.T. ideals that they feel they need to work on. The possible ideals to choose from are:

            Encouragement of others

            Exhibiting effort and participation

            Awareness of the needs and feelings of others

            Having a positive attitude

            Consideration for the environment and community

            Taking responsibility for ones own actions

            Being a good role model

Students are then given additional assignments and activities to complete outside of class which encourage them to think about others, so that they can work to become more kind, considerate, and helpful.

Once the student has shown that they have sufficiently worked on their chosen ideals, and have completed the necessary assignments and activities, they are inducted into the S.W.A.T. program. A ceremony is held in which they are presented with a patch and certificate.

After the student becomes a part of the team they are required to continue to complete assignments and be involved in service activities in order to maintain their membership status.

As students become older and more advanced in rank,  the assignments become more involved with community service.

Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing."    - Theodore Roosevelt

 

"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result. 
Gandhi

 

"Humankind has not woven the web of life.  We are but one thread within it.  Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.   All things are bound together.  All things connect."                    Chief Seattle
