New Student Story from a 6 Year Old!

Another story from one of our amazing students… this one from 6 year old, Ryan Oivis:

I like karate because I am learning to protect myself from bullies.  It has also helped me with my self-control and to improve my safety.  I have enjoyed working hard to earn my black belt even though at times it wasn’t easy.

Karate has also helped me with self-esteem by making me strong.  After I earn my first degree I would like to continue working hard to earn my second degree black belt and continue improving myself.
