My Black Belt Story

When I first started karate back in 2005, I was scared to go out on the mat, I got my belt taken away about once every month. Now it has been about 7 years and I walk with confidence onto the mat. There have been the ups and the downs, goods and bad. But one of the good things would have to be the instructors. Mr. Kraus has been a great teacher for all these years and he has helped me through a lot of the aspects of martial arts, because when I began, I hadn’t even had the faintest idea of what martial arts meant. And it doesn’t just mean kicking and punching. It also means respect, self-confidence, responsibility and many other things. And I have learned all those things.

My Black Belt Journey

I started Karate to learn how to control my anger and not argue with my brothers. I learned self control and self defense. I recommend martial arts to learn how to control your anger and better ways to deal with things that anger me.

my life

I want to learn to fight to defend myself. I get beat up almost every time and I try to resist. How’s nearly I got great defense but a bad reputation of offense.
