First Degree Black Belt
Years In Karate: 11
History: I joined the school when I was in sixth grade. A friend of mine, who was also a student at the school convinced me to join. After joining, I cam into train as often as I could. I made steady progress through the system. My development continued until my freshman year of high school. That same year, I fractured my wrist. Despite this injuyr I still came to train, though there were some things that I was not able to do. Aside from my regular training, I also began training in Iron Palm.
By the time I left high school, I had reached forst degree brown and began the preparations for earning my Black Belt. S hortly after, I entered college and my training began to slow down. When I was not at college, I would return home and resume training. In the summer fo 2012, I began intensive training with several others for my black belt test. The test took place that August and after 10 years, I had finally reached my black belt. This was a very significant achievement for me! However, I have not stopped my training, it is ongoing.
