Some people when a crisis happens will freeze and don’t move. If there’s danger, their brain can’t comprehend it, so they do nothing and allow the crisis to overcome them with fear.
Here’s my question to you, what do the leaders do, do we become victims? I don’t think so.
As a leader, we need to stand up. And you as a martial arts instructor, have been trained to be a leader and an instructor all of your life. Be the leader who directs the people who are fearful, what we can do is to take our minds off the fear and victimhood then turn our brains and our emotions and actions towards victory.
We provide training to our students without putting them in danger.
We provide guidance to students who feel lost and confused.
When people are afraid, they need leadership and people that are going to help them.
The energy of the people being fearful and aggressive can make your muscles tense and as martial arts instructors, we help them stay relaxed under the most stressful conditions.
As a leader, we serve with great honor, discipline, and dedication to take risks for the survival of others.
