Martial arts (Page 11)
jsonaut: My son does karate, he's 9, and he enjoys it, it teaches him discipline, listening, patience, and
memory training. what's not to like? so some dick head wants a fight, well my son might be confident enough to avoid the fight completely by being confident. Bullies hate confidence. Anyway, I didn't sign him up to lessons to be the world's best fighter, but for him to learn maturity, and self-assurance, and control etc. I think it's a great thing.
Tashababe97: Hi, i do karate, im a black belt 1st dan, going for my 2nd next year! i do wado-ryu! Ive been all over the world in the past 5 years of me gaining all my belts! ive been to Scotland, all over England, Spain, Ireland! Many places! ive fort in World Championsips and National Championships and had loads of experience from everyone! Im a 3x World Champion in Kumite (fighting) 2x World Champion in kata too! Im also a 4x National Champion in kumite and a national champion in Kata!
However at the club im at now i dont seem to be gaining anything from it anymore! The instructors cannot teach me anything i need anymore! So ive decided to move to a different club however under the same association! However this instructor knows where i need to be, what level i need to be at! He knows my strengths and weaknesses and by the next 4 years arrive i should be at where i need to be to be selected to go into the Olympics!!!!
I also have all my own clubs i teach younger children at school, seniors at high school and through out all that i gain about 50 students at my main lessons during the week/weekends! I believe in discipline and I know what discipline feels like too as my parents are very strict and know whats right and wrong! However with all the experience i have got i takes courrage from family and friends to walk onto a mat to fight your opponents! However i didnt used to have that until they saw what a fighter i am!!!!! i Believe in pain and will builder a barrier to get over what ever the pain is!!! If i'm down (which is not that often) but i will get up and carry on!!! Nobody beats me without having a good fight! Amount of people i have given pain to and put a few in hospital it has been worth the fight because it takes alot to get me angry and mad! So they must have done something for me to go that far!!!
I think these days all kids should do some type or martial arts to be safe on the streets because with the amount of people there is these days that are kidnapping or rapping kids its unreal!!! Kids need the martial arts they can get to feel safe these days!
Hope this has been readable and helpful to some people!
