Began karate at 7 years old
Achieved Shodan January 2015
Home town – Arkport
Attending Alfred State College for Digital Media and Animation
I began Karate because – like most seven year olds I wanted to be like the Karate Kid
Martial Arte has given me the confidence to succeed in life.
I was very shy and afraid when I was younger. I have learned how to stand in front of people and take charge.
Most importantly I have learned to try to always uphold the ideals of resect, discipline, honor and courage.
I don’t know what I would be without Martial Arts but what I do know is that I am better person than I ever could have been had I not taken karate, especially under Hanshi Stiegler
