“When I first came to karate, I was very nervous and excited. I felt frustrated and cried because I did something wrong and I wanted to quit. The instructors encouraged and praised me regardless. I decided to give it another chance and by working hard and coming to class I have gotten better with self control, not crying, discipline, and team work. I’m currently a Black Belt Leader with an orange advanced belt. Karate has made a difference in my life. It makes me feel powerful, energetic, and confident.”
