My Black Belt Essay
by Jordan, age 8
Over the years, karate has taught me many things. It has taught me not just to defend myself and others but taught me to be loyal, helpful, kind and honest. Being a karate student means that you help people in every way possible. I know that karate will help me in the future. For example, it will help me to be healthy by exercising. It helped me to be respectful and have confidence. Being at karate has been fun and I hope that it will last for a long time. As a higher goal, I want to pass down the fun experience of karate as a teacher. I hope that our tradition stays until the end. It also taught me to listen by watching your teacher and focusing. If you have a goal that you want to reach, you don’t stop when you mess up. Believe in yourself and keep trying. Show respect to your parents and teachers by being nice and using manners. I will be able to use karate in the future if someone attacks me or a friend. Karate to me is the most important thing to me besides my family. It’s not just helpful but karate is very fun. I’m proud to be a karate student. Thank you all teachers. I appreciate all the help you gave me to get to this point.
A special thanks to you Sensei Cassie and Sensei Gary.
