A Parent’s perspective on why they pay so much money for their children to participate in martial arts?

“I don’t pay for my children to take martial Arts; I pay for those moments when my children becomes so tired they want to quite but they don’t; I pay for those days when my children are ‘too tired’ to go their practice but go anyway; I pay for  my children to be disciplined; I pay for my children to learn to take care of their body; I pay for my children to learn to work with others and to be good team mates; I pay for my children to learn to deal with disappointment, when they go to tournaments but don’t get the score they’d hope for, but still have to work hard in the preparation and competition; I pay for my children to learn to make and accomplish goals; I pay for my children to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight; I pay for the opportunity my children have to make life long friendships; I pay so that my children can be in a school instead of in front of the TV screen; I don’t pay for martial arts, I pay for the opportunities that martial arts provides my children with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment.
