According to the students'
testimonies, public performances and demonstrations at schools and
in different locations have helped them tremendously. They have actually become more
confident and have acquired a great amount of knowledge. As a matter
of fact, this testimony itself was a public speech and both students
were speaking out loudly and assertively. Their participation in
demonstrations and exhibits as well as in tournaments
has shaped their self-esteem and self-image,
according to some parents' declaration.Another salient
feature of the data, especially collected from the surveys, was the issue of confidence.
Parents mentioned that their children (3 out of 5) who started as very shy
children can speak up and talk in public and are showing signs of
confidence. One mom declared: "He has more confidence and shows responsibility
and knowledge at home and at school". Another parent declared that there has been
a gradual increase in responsibility and knowledge. A third parent wrote:
During the last parents ' conference, the teacher told me
that my daughter has changed drastically this past year.
She is strong and shows confidence in her work''. Another tangential testimony
of confidence was displayed during the black belt testing of two of
the students included in the study. For this promotion,
every student has to prepare a public speech telling
about his or her history in the training hall with all the
activities and the participation that would have taken place. In
the testimony, one student said: "I was very scared when first started, because
everyone was bigger and stronger than I was...but now I am more confident and am not
scared of learning new things.
