Demonstrating the correct martial arts etiquette is considered one of the optimum levels of practice in the arts, and shows the training of a student’s mind, body and spirit. An instructor who teaches etiquette within their class is considered a singular teacher who cares for the students at a higher level. Etiquette tests in Mind-Body-Spirit Martial Arts are part of the process for testing higher grades and ranks.
Displaying appropriate etiquette shows refinement and elegance within the art but also demonstrates how martial artists can transform a negative situation into a positive one.
Most martial arts disciplines follow similar ethics and guidelines for respect for oneself, others, nature and the arts. These are rarely written down. Instead they are passed down verbally from one generation to the next. These codes of polite behaviour are a crucial aspect of the arts because, as martial artists, we are always striving to improve our mind, body and spirit.
