This video warms my heart ❤️ This young man named Lyric is teaching a palm strike. Lyric practices everyday, and on weekends, he teaches some of his neighbors what he learns from class! He spreads so much joy wherever he goes. His mother calls him “Sunshine on two legs”.
Martial arts has and continues to help Lyric with his patience, control, and following instructions. At his first class, he was a little nervous and his focus was everywhere. His favorite color is yellow, so @bigbow_bigfaith gave him a yellow dot to help him focus and know where to stand.
Lyric recently earned his Little Dragon yellow belt and even broke his first board! After that, I spoke with some other instructors and we agreed that Lyric could do class without his yellow dot. So when he came to his next class, I told him he was going to try class without it and see if he can stay focused. I said, “You have your yellow belt now, so you don’t need that dot anyways!” .
He took class, and he was focused better than ever! It’s moments like that I live for. Knowing that you directly impacted someone’s life for the better. And then they take the knowledge you give them and spread it to others with joy!
Thank you to all of the instructors that helped with Lyric’s growth. He is already soaring
