As most of you know, I have dedicated the past 8 years to my martial arts career. As an 8 year old walking into my very first karate class, I knew right then and there that I wanted to become a black belt one day. Well, that day is finally approaching. This Saturday with my Sensei Aaron Bailey I will be testing in front of a board of Roken karate instructors in Memphis, Tennessee. This, for most, would seemingly be the end of their journey in martial arts. Well, for me this is only the beginning. This is, in essence, the door surrounded in light at the end of the hall that leads to somewhere bigger and better.
I plan to keep sharing my knowledge with others because I believe that with one good deed at a time we can change the world. And for me, that good deed is teaching martial arts and self defense to women and children, and use the skills that I have learned throughout my training to inspire and to motivate people to be the very best that they can be and to reach for their dreams, no matter how big they may be.
I will be sure to keep you updated and will post pictures of the end ceremony after the test.
(no one is allowed to be in the test except for the instructors and I)
Please keep me in your prayers, and wish me luck!
(not that luck actually has anything to do with it)
God Bless You All
