It's Not Just the Title but the Honor That Comes With It.

by Brianna Zelaya
(Las Vegas, Nevada)

Being in karate changed me by self discipline, honor, courage, respect, and gratitude. Just because you have a 'Black Belt' doesn't mean you're done with karate or you're the best. Everyday you learn new things that takes practice on mastering. No one is perfect and practice only makes you better. If you really want something you can't expect it to just be handed to you, you have to earn it and work hard. I've learned that being in karate you have not only new friends, but a new family. We help each other, work hard, and still have fun doing it. People will come and go but karate will always be there when you need it and it isn't going anywhere. If you work hard, you'll achieve greater than what you expected.
