I can do it
I have been in karate for 3 years, since I was 6yrs old. My journey was fun and tough. My tough times was when I was learning the things I needed to do. When I got to my Brown belt, I had to do BBR’s. I wasn’t doing them right, so I had to wait 6 months to test, because I needed more practice. Then it came time, and now I am about to do my Jr Black Belt Testing. My brother went through that and we all saw how hard it was. We turned our heads a few times as we were watching. The success that I had in karate, was I passed all my belt levels, and now I am onto a new one. I will succeed. I know I will. I know I will pass. Everyday I work hard. I hope I will pass to get my belt.

Karate and my Life
I think that my experience with karate can be boiled down to a few things. When I came to my first class, I was very shy, not at all assertive, and not very confident at all. Action taught me that there was so much more inside me than even I had known. I learned not only how to be a martial artist, but leading katas, demonstrating techniques and “keeping my power up” all helped me to learn to be an outgoing person. I now participate in and out of school, am incredibly outgoing in classes and social circles, and above all, compassionate towards those who shared my struggles, and like working out a student’s footing in a kata, am ready and happy to go the extra mile to help them get from where I was to where I am.
acheiving my goal
it was nerve racking my first class, but after i said “See ya!” for the first time I learned that this is what I wanted to do for a long time.
After time training and ranking up i learned how to be confident and stay focused. Finally it came time for me to test for my junior black belt i was very nervouse there we times where I wanted to just run out and quit but i stuck to it and walked out with a perfect card.
Ther were other great accomplishments i got like becoming on the SWAT and demo team, but it all lead up to testing for my 1st degree. I am excited about the challenge and cant wait hear my results. Thank you Action Karate
