For the month of November, Johnson’s Tiger Rock Martial Arts students are asked to put a token into a clear acrylic box prior to entering the training floor. On the token, the student writes something that they are thankful for. We all can be more thankful, and it is the practice of giving thanks that leads to the improvement of the action itself. This is a practice that we call out of the dojo (or dojang) and into the world. We are so much more than the punch and the kick, and we really walk the walk.
