I am a karate junkie. Not the type that has to see every karate movie out there. No, I am a full on, have to practice karate junkie. I go through periods of needed withdrawal, times when I have to take a time-out. But these times last for about a week and even then, I still show up. Showing up is half the battle, the other half is walking on the floor.
I am a karate junkie. Not the type the reads everything they can about every martial art out there. No, I attend every event I can within my region. We hold 2 tournaments a year, 6-10 black belt workouts, 2 training weekends, and special seminars to learn new skills, plus other random fun days to go along with it.
I am a karate junkie. Not the type that holds a black belt in many different arts. No, mine came after years of training, sweating, trying, succeeding, failing, and showing up. Mine came while my crazy self was 4 months pregnant with first child.
I am a karate junkie. Not the type that you just know takes karate by their “intimidation” factor. No, I am a full on karate instructor with a 3rd degree black belt. My specialty is getting little kids (4-6 years old) to stay in one spot and work, hard, for 45 minutes. There is no stopping them and there is no stopping me. If I am not sweating by the end, then they did not work hard enough.
