The 3 A’s Of Achievement

Posted: March 10, 2019

Dear Friend,


I trust this blog finds you well. 

Today is my daughter Karina’s 10th birthday. 

This morning, she encouraged her 3.9 year old sister, Kellisa, to participate in a full Jiu-Jitsu class. 

It worked out well, and Kellisa earned her White Belt.

Karina asked me to write a short blog, so we can continue celebrating her birthday, without any interruptions.

“Daddy, please don’t spend all day writing a blah, blah, blog, okay?”, she asked. 

So we picked a topic that her and I constantly discuss.

Here we go.

The 3 A's Of Achievement...

• Attitude 

• Attendance

• Ability 

All 3 are extremely important. 

However, attitude and ability are quite subjective. 

Attendance is objective.

It can be precisely measured. 

Persistence is necessary for progress in all endeavors, including the Martial Arts. 

There it is, short and sweet. 

I look forward to seeing you and your family in class at the Dojo.
