I got started with Action like many do, through my children. My twins began about three years ago as Ninja sharks. Like many parents I sat in the waiting area on my phone. After a few months of persuasion from Mr Brenner and Mr McQuade I got out on the mat. I was pretty nervous. It had been several years since I last worked out and I had gotten pretty out shape. I knew I had to exercise to keep up with my children so that was my main motivation. Support and encouragement from my instructors and fellow students and my family kept me going. Gradually, I started feeling better physically. Fast forward three years and I am prepared to test for my 1st degree Black Belt. I am 30 pounds lighter and exercising 5-6 days a week and feeling the best physically that I have in many years. Really looking forward to the testing and the next chapters on martial arts training.
Hi my name is Maeve and this is my Action karate story. well i started karate in July 2016.I was 5 year’s old.I was a ninja.I started karate because my mom say’s my listening skills were not good, but i do not really remember why i started my self cause it was kinda long ago but my parents say me listening skills improved a lot well i’m 8 now but i’m turning 9 this month.when i just turned six after a year of ninjas i started to feel like i know everything there is to know in ninjas. so one of my instructors pulled me back and ask me if i wanted to join the white through red class and i said “Sure!” with a smile. a week later i went to karate i was the youngest in my class so instead of feeling old i felt young.My first class i went up to my instructor and ask where is my red gi i was already using weapons i was in black belt leader ship i just did not have the red gi yet so my first ever promotion i got my red gi i was filled with thrill when they called my name up.after a few promotion i decided when i was a brown with white i wanted to do hit team so i was seven when i did it. it was hard but i got through it fine and i double belted to get mt brown with black strip when i did hit team i was also almost 8 so when promotion rolled around i was 8. so i filliped.and a few month’s later i got my red belt and got invited to join the demo team! and that’s my action karate story i looking forward to be part of the black belt test!!
