At YI’s Karate of Vineland, we are committed to helping children develop this vital character trait through our comprehensive karate training program.

What is Integrity?

Integrity is often described as doing the right thing even when no one is watching. It encompasses honesty, moral principles, and a commitment to upholding one’s values. For children, developing integrity means learning to be truthful, reliable, and accountable for their actions.

This discipline helps them develop a sense of responsibility and accountability, essential components of integrity.
  2. Respect for Self and OthersOne of the core principles of karate is respect. From the moment they step onto the academy floor, children are taught to respect their instructors, peers, and themselves. This respect extends beyond the academy, influencing how they interact with their families, friends, and teachers.

This honesty fosters a sense of trust and reliability, which are vital aspects of integrity.
  4. Perseverance and CommitmentKarate is not just about physical strength; it’s also about mental fortitude. Our students learn the value of perseverance and commitment as they work towards their goals, whether it’s mastering a new technique or earning a higher belt. This commitment to their practice helps them understand the importance of staying true to their word and following through on their promises.
  5. Moral Decision-MakingThrough various training scenarios and real-life applications, children at YI’s Karate of Vineland are taught to make moral and ethical decisions. They learn to weigh the consequences of their actions and choose the path that aligns with their values and principles. This ability to make sound moral decisions is a cornerstone of integrity.
