On Saturday, I had a belt test at my karate. I do a style that combines Shotokan and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). Right now, we are doing a big kata. It is called the Thunder Kata. I tested for my 2nd brown belt. Here is a picture of my 2nd brown belt:
One day, my mom asked me if I wanted to do karate. At that point, I was only four years old. Before I started karate, my mom and I had been walking in and looking at kids do karate. Then I took a free trial class. I really liked it so I kept on going.
My sensei's were sensei Tom and sensei Andy. I really liked sensei Tom because he really tried hard to teach you karate and he only played games if we were doing our best. I learned that the #1 rule in karate is always try your best. I liked sensei Andy because if we did good for about 20 minutes we would be able to play games for 25 minutes.
I went to karate with my friends: Kelly, Ethan, Deven, Dylan and Wyatt. Deven and I are the only ones who still go to karate. One day, I went to karate with my friend Dylan and there was a new sensei named sensei Trever. I was sad that sensei Tom and sensei Andy left but now I am happy that sensei Trever came. Also, sensei Romel came. He quit after about a year because he is on someTV shows. Along the way, my senseis Eric, Brandon and Leandro joined the dojo. Now after 4 years, I just got my 2nd brown belt. At my dojo, the belt order goes: white, yellow, orange, blue, purple, green, 1st red, 2nd red, 3rd red, 1st brown, 2nd brown, 3rd brown, black, 2nd black.
