Dear Mum / Dad
Thank you for enrolling me with Tring Martial Arts Academy.
I loved studying and practicing Martial Arts
The training I have received has made me more confident and I feel able to defend myself IF I need to
Sometimes I said I wanted to quit, but all I really needed was your help to refocus, thank you for recognising that!
I loved learning martial arts, I feel ready for whatever life may throw at me.
Thank you for not letting me quit Martial Arts, I know I didn’t make it easy for you to take me to class, but by not letting me quit you taught me about dedication and keeping my promises.
I loved it when you came to watch me at class, thanks for giving me that smile and encouragement when I needed it
Thank you for telling me you loved watching me work and train hard.
Sometimes that’s all the encouragement I needed to take my experience from good to GREAT
Thank you for asking Sensei how I was doing, they really like it when parents ask.
When I took my Black Belt Test, I wasn’t sure I would pass, thank you for believing in me, that was what I needed! (Pause)
I am a Black Belt! But just for the record, to me you are a Black Belt as well!
I love you!
