Tuesday, December 16th, 2014
“Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of the pleasures costs nothing and conveys much. It pleases him who gives and him who receives, and thus, like mercy, it is twice blessed.”
Courtesy is one of the many good traits that Serdar “Sam” Guner is teaching in his taekwondo class. But first, what is courtesy? And secondly, how can you be courteous to one another?
Courtesy is the showing of politeness in one’s attitude and behavior towards others.
But how do Serdar “Sam” Guner teach his students’ courtesy? Let’s find out.
“I told them to greet each other whenever they enter as well as whenever they leave. That is already a simple act of courtesy”, says Serdar “Sam” Guner . One of the fundamental lessons that Sam teaches in his Taekwondo class is simply being humble and modest to everyone. “I also teach them to respect each other regardless of their rank”, Sam adds. Ranks should not be used to intimidate others on your class – you must treat everyone in your class with utmost respect. In connection with starting with simple act of courtesy, Serdar “Sam” Guner urges his students to bowing to their fellow classmates as well as to their teacher. Not only before and after sparring but also whenever they greet each other.
“Many students learn courtesy from me but you know as a teacher, you might as well learn from your students”, Sam thoughtfully says. Respect begets respect. As a teacher, Sam sets as a good example. Every time they end a class session, the students thank him for imparting his knowledge onto them and in return, he thanks them back for taking his lessons seriously. Instead of having the plain old teaching session where the teacher only talks during the class, Serdar “Sam” Guner sees to it that his class is participating in the class by letting his students say what they have in mind.
As a Taekwondo instructor, not only does Serdar “Sam” Guner teach his students about discipline. He also imparts the importance of being courteous to one another; not only in class but as well as outside the class. People who are courteous are the people who find less trouble and conflicts that may come to their path.
Politeness, civility, respect, kindness, being well-mannered – these are just some of the words that can be connected to courtesy. You can gain these traits by starting with something simple – be courteous to everyone and possibly gain the world.
