ABOUT MYSELF

I turned 17 in May 2010, Iím in grade 12, other than Karate, I also like soccer, cricket and swimming. Iím a wholesome outgoing person, love to be out on weekends, Iím very bubbly and funny or at least, I think so. I believe in myself, a very hard, dedicated, committed, trustworthy, humble and loyal worker, always try to do more than whatís expected of me.

My initial introduction to Karate was at the age of four, but  officially started training at five. As  I  had my first grading after being with TAMASA for a year and a half.

 I was very young, and my father was the Head Instructor of Mitchellís Plain Dojoís at the time. My elder sister was also enjoying herself in the Art, so thought that I would give the Karate a more serious approach. . There was no stopping me, the more I attended the classes, the greater the hunger became for this Effective Art(Kenpo). My passion for this Extreme System of Self Defence really grew as I got older and went onto High School.

The principles and values instilled in me through the Kenpo Karate teaching,  started to take hold and benefitted me. I was now faced with many real challenges and could apply it in my school career and social life. Kenpo Karate as taught under the Tiger Academy of Martial Arts has been to me like a grandfather, it might sound odd, but it helped me to make the right choices, respect myself as well as for others. It developed my self esteem, character, leadership abilities and  to confidently take up any new challenges that came my way.

I have practically done Karate all my life; Some of the benefits have been, time management and  prioritising . I have gained great respect from fellow school friends and  teachers through being a role model.
