Samurai Karate Studio Presents to Students of Bridge Creek Elementary School
Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor of Samurai Karate Studio, presented the "Way of the Samurai" to the entire student population at Bridge Creek Elementary School. The presentation covered a brief historical background of the Samurai and then talked about self discipline and how today's students, just like the Samurai, needed to serve themselves, their families, their community and their world.
The presentation covered an historical background on the Samurai with a contemporary twist. The students were encouraged to think of themselves as Samurai.
"While the Samurai were known to be fierce warriors, what most people don't know is they were also learned men and women, who demonstrated great character traits like discipline, honor, integrity and respect," commented Sensei Chris Feldt, "I like to ask the students to think of themselves as modern day Samurai!"
Sensei Feldt's presentation focuses on how students can serve themselves by getting fit and eating healthy foods, by serving their family by doing their chores without being asked or their homework and getting good grades so that their family would be proud, by serving their community by doing service projects in and around their neighborhoods and finally, by serving their world by recycling waste and not littering.
"This group of children was one of the best behaved I have presented to," commented Feldt, "they asked some really good questions and demonstrated great manners. "I really had a lot of fun visiting with them."
