All Lil' Action Heroes recite the creed, with the instructor, before every class
as a daily affirmation! This helps to create a mindset of success!
The Lil' Action Hero Creed
A Lil’ Action Hero, I stand tall and proud,
a martial arts super kid who sounds-off loud!
I say yes sir / yes ma’am and bow with respect,
A never quit attitude is in effect!
To be proud and believe in myself is self-esteem,
a future black belt on the Lil Action Heroes team!
I raise self-esteem by saying "I can do it!"
and proving to myself that I will get through it!
Resilience means that my spirit is tough,
It’s continuing on when things get rough,
It’s a deep breath and smile instead of a frown,
and getting back up after being knocked down!
Self-discipline means do the right thing without being told.
I will use self-discipline to keep my actions controlled!
Respect is bowing in class, being nice, and sharing.
The best way I can respect others is by caring!
The 3 rules of concentration are needed to be wise,
focus my mind, focus my body, and focus my eyes!
I will use these 3 rules everywhere that I go,
Use them to listen and learn to win and to grow!
I’ll only use martial arts with good common sense,
to be healthy, make friends, and practice self-defense!
To become a black belt I know I must commit.
A black belt is just a white belt who never quit!
I’ll practice at home and tell my teacher that I did,
I’m a Lil’ Action Hero Martial Arts Super Kid!
