My Story of Karate

I have been doing karate for about 6 years. I started as an Asah shark and have worked my way to test for my junior black belt. I am very happy and excited to have made it this far, sooner than when my sister could test. It hasn’t been easy recently because I was losing interest, but my mom, aunt and uncle have pushed me to the goal of junior black belt. I have learned so much during my time here. I have learned to better control my actions, listen to my teachers and how to deal with bully situations. I don’t know how far I will go with karate but the journey this far has been helpful.

The Black Belt Journey

I have been doing karate for the past 5 1/2 years and have faced many challenges along the way. During my last year at Action, I lost the desire to do it anymore and my parents were getting upset because it was like pulling teeth with me to go. I was bored with it and I really enjoyed the times that I did not go, and then something clicked. I began enjoying it again and it became fun for me and now I get to test in just a couple weeks. Karate has taught me so much in past years and I feel blessed to have worked with some of the instructor that have crossed my path. I have made so many friends at Action, and I love just being able to do it with them. Finally, I do not know where my path with lead me, but I sure know that all of the lessons I learned at Action Karate Feasterville, like self-control,self-discipline, etc, will help me do whatever to my fullest potential.

My karate controls

I have been doing karate for 7 1/2 years. One major thing karate has helped me with is my controls. I used to not be able to control myself but after a while karate taught me respect. It also has helped me with perseverance before karate if I didn’t get something right away I would quit but now I know that I have to work hard and persevere to get something. Over all my black belt journey helped me understand how life is and there will be hard parts and fun parts but that it is rough.
