As a little kid my passion was soccer but I always wanted to be a Black Belt. Now as an adult, I have found that karate has changed me. I have become much calmer, look at things much differently. Karate is not just about fighting or being able to defend yourself. It changed me as a person.
So far I have not had to use my skills to defend myself but I do believe that having others know that I am a student in karate has prevented things from happening. In my family only my brother and I study karate. My goal is to become a Black Belt.
