Action Effect Stories
How Action Helped Me
I first started at Action when I was about ten years old. I excited because I’ve seen alot of karate movies amd I had wanted to be just like them. At first I thought we were just going to be doing kicks and punches, but I was wrong. We did much more than that we learned all kinds of life lessons. As I got closer to black belt, things started getting harder. I have considered quitting but then I thougt “you know what, I really want my black belt and it’s too late to give up.
There is a saying that goes, “when the going gets tough, you gotta get tougher.” And that’s what I had to do and that is what I will continue to do in life because of action.
My Journey to Junior Blackbelt
My name is Jayden and I am 9 years old. I started karate when I was in Kindergarten and it was the best thing that happened to me. I learned how to stand up for myself and be confident I learned to not be a bystander and to help my classmates and friends.
My first goal was to make it on the demo team and I did! I was so proud of myself! I love being on the demo team!
My next goal was to earn my Junior Blackbelt and I am excited to finally reach that goal! I will keep doing karate until I’m a 10th degree Blackbelt! I love karate and my school and all my instructors. They are the best!
When I started at Action Karate it was easy, but then things started to get more challenging. I love that I’m learning how to protect myself and getting stronger. It also helps me with self-control, confidence, perseverance and more. My favorite thing is doing wheel and round house kicks. My least favorite is doing burpees. During classes I’ve made some friends and am thankful for my awesome instructors. One of the best things about karate is that I get to do it with my brother. I’m super happy about earning my Junior Black Belt, it is one of my greatest achievements!
