Before I was in karate I needed medication to focus. Now I don’t need it anymore because I have learned how to focus in karate class. Karate has taught me discipline at home and school. My parents don’t have to tell me over and over to do something. I do it on my own now. Karate has helped me with physical and mental strength. I have gained more integrity over my years at karate. At school, I do the right thing even when the teachers aren’t looking. Karate has taught me how to set a goal and work hard to achieve it. I am thankful for the support from my karate family and my parents.
