Mateship is more than just friendship. It is showing loyalty to others. It is treating people equally, regardless of race, gender, creed or religion.
Mateship embodies everything good about the people in our society. It is not superficial, but rather a subconscious bond that helps unites us all together. Who doesn’t want to be accepted and valued by those around them?
Mateship in Martial Arts
Through our martial arts classes, we promote mateship. This is why we have such a great community. There are always times in martial arts where things can get hard. This can be training in class, or working hard to achieve your next grading. Without your mates helping you, martial arts can become more difficult. “Martial arts mateship” promotes solidarity among all of the students to help “build a better you”.
Be a “mate” to everybody this week.
