Learn how to use the tenants and values of the martial arts to improve your life, your work, and your professionalism.
Practitioners of many of the eastern martial arts such as tae kwon do and karate adhere to a code of honor. An integral part of martial arts training include learning the tenants of that code of honor. Black Belt Ethics examines the various tenets that define the martial artist’s code of honor. The course reviews each of these tenets and discusses how they can be applied in our personal and professional lives. During the course, participants will examine the tenants of respect, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, courage and community. Mastery of each tenant allows the participant to advance toward their own Black Belt in Ethics.
Individuals and corporations that adhere to these tenants are not only highly respected, they are generally quite successful. So if you are interested in learning how to live by the highest standards of professionalism and improve your chances of being successful, you should consider earning your Black Belt in Ethics.
The Black Belt Ethics Class lasts approximately 1 hour and meets the requirements of most professional registration and licensure requirements for ethics training.

Applicable Credits: 0.0 CEUs - 1PDH
