My Karate Journey

I started at Action Karate as a Ninja Shark over four years ago. At the time I was really not sure what karate was all about and I lacked self-discipline and focus. Over the years, I have gained much of confidence and learned a lot about myself. I have also made good friends who have been with me during my black belt journey. I am getting ready to take my black belt test. While I am nervous I am also excited. I will give it my best effort as I know I will only get out of it what I put into it. I think karate is great for anyone like me who needed a little push to reach her full potential.

My Action Karate Story

I started at Action Karate when I was 6. Now I am 10 and working on earning my junior black belt. When I first started karate I had trouble focusing and I was not very coordinated. But Action Karate has helped me to stay focused when someone is talking to me and taught me better hand-eye coordination. I am much more brave than I was when I started. I have learned many self defenses and how to keep my body strong and healthy. The instructors are very nice and they help me. It was really worth it going to karate and I recommend it to other kids like me.

My Karate Story

I started Action Karate when I was three years old.When I started I was not focused and didn’t understand what was happening. Most of the time I had to look around to see what we were doing in class. Now you have to have focus or you’ll have no idea what to expect from the Black Belt test. Karate has not only helped me learn focus and to protect myself but to be a good person. My karate classmates are like family to me. Not only do they have my back, I have theirs. We help each other learn and practice. Karate is about making friends and learning how to work with others. Karate has guided me. Those are the reasons why I am a black belt candidate.
