I have been doing karate for over 8 years. I started as a young kid, about 5 ½, for fun but soon realized this was something I wanted to stick with for a long time. I have made many friends through karate at Pro Martial Arts and it has played a huge role in shaping the person I am today. Karate not only teaches self-defense and other physical elements, but it teaches character, respect, honor, and many other key lessons that stick with you for the rest of your life. I love learning new things in karate, and teaching people what I know. Karate has helped shaped the person I am and will continue to shape me for the rest of my life.
