There are different types of respect:

Respect for others property.

Self respect.

Respect for one's parents.

Respecting others beliefs.

Respecting the environment.

Respecting the capabilities of one's enemies.

Respecting the wishes of a dying person.

Paying respects to those that have died.

Respecting others privacy.

Having respect for the law.

Respecting the differences between one's self and others.

Having a sense of respect is a part of having social skills, being a people person or not, getting along with others is an integral part of having survival skills living in a society.

Imho, no matter the type of respect, respect is earned, and never given on a whim; integrity should always be paramount.

Our sensei had an opportunity to drill this into some of his students last night. Periodically, instead of having a normal class, he has a "clean and workout day". For the beginner's class (white/yellow belts), he asked them to take a Clorox wipe and wipe down the sparring gear and pads.

When one of the kids heard what he was being asked, he shouted "This is humiliating". Our sensei then used that as a teaching moment, and talked about how it is supposed to teach humility, and how karate begins and ends with respect. He then told them that in Japan, the students were expected to clean the dojo every single day, and that in a way this is their equipment, since they are using it everyday.

He then had them do multiple rounds of push-ups, sit-ups, wall squats, and a few other conditioning/strengthening exercises.

I was super proud of Zach, he didn't complain at all, and you could see him trying even when he wasn't strong enough to finish a set. He always started the set and kept trying.

Thanks for sharing aurik

Aa martial artists it is our duty to turn the normal every day duties in to the extra ordinary.

Be creative combining and adapting martial arts with every day mundane tasks and items

If anyone you know complains about cleaning the toilet (or anything for that matter) then tell them that it is better to do that than to be a sewage diver
