Last night I started back at Karate for the year. I have been going to karate for six months now and I really love it. I am a Young Dragon.
My Dojo is at Lismore in NSW, it's called Success Martial Arts.
The Kids’ Karate Promise:
1. I promise never to use karate to show off or to hurt or scare others.
2. I will always show self-control and respect.
3. I will only use my skills to defend myself,
to protect others and to improve my life.
4. I am on a quest to be my best.
At the end of last year I was invited into Leadership.
This means that I get to train with weapons and I get to train for my black belt. I will get my provisional black belt in 2022, when I am in year 6, and my full black belt 2 years later.
The photo shows all the different belts for Young Dragons.
At the moment I am on Gold belt level 3. You can see I still have a lot of belts to get through.
I go to karate a couple of times a week.
They also have tournaments and last year I won two medals, a gold and a bronze.
Karate is great fun and I have made lots of friends.
I think all kids should try it out and if you don't like it you are allowed to quit. But there's nice people there, you get to learn new stuff like how to defend yourself and you can get medals and trophies.
Until next time...
