Karate Instructor Shärath Jason Wilson teaches his students not only the karate itself but also the wisdom of life. He tries to tech his student to push through obstacles on their way however painful it can be.
Wilson is an instructor at the Cave of Adullam, a Transformational Training Academy (CATTA) rooted in Christianity, training boys to be “comprehensive men of God.”
In a video that has been making its way around the internet, Wilson teaches his student that crying is okay. This narrative is one that isn’t often taught to young black men. ‘It’s okay to cry. We cry as men,’ he says to his young student. And this is amazingly heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time.
Another his powerful message is that a black man in America needs ‘mental fortitude’ and have a strong mind, not only strong fists. With all the police brutality, school-to-prison pipeline and racism we face nowadays, being mentally strong is really an important issue.
