Thoughts of a Student of the Day

I do Karate to learn how to defend myself and to clear my mind. I like Karate because it's my favorite hobby. It is special to me because it teaches me how to control my mind and body.

I go once a week to my class where my favorite thing is sparring. Every day I train by practicing my stretches, punching and kicking. I am proud of my splits and my controlled high kicks.

I like Bruce Lee because of his skill in Kung Fu. In my bedroom I have posters of Bruce Lee and my training pads. I like to train with my best pal Oliver. My ambition is to be as good as possible and one day become a Black Belt.
