Lesson 16: Stand up for what is right, even if you’re standing alone
Stand up for what is right. We know inside what is right and wrong. And it is easier to stand up to your enemies then it is to your friends. But a black belt must have the integrity and courage to stand up for what is right, no matter what the cost to themselves. And in doing so may be an example for those around you.
Stand up to bullying. This does not mean, you must confront the bully directly. But ask for help or if you see a friend being bullied go get help.. Or use the skills you learn in our anti bullying program.
Standing up to friends is hard. But is your friends ask you to do things you know are wrong. You must say no. Throwing stones, bulling, stealing, swimming in lakes or canals etc are all examples of things you should say no to.
