What Karate means to me....

Karate to me means defending yourself from bad people that want to hurt
you. If I ever saw someone disrespect a Sensei right In front of me I would
tell them to do push ups and think about It. then we can talk If he ever
does that again to anyone I will tell them to respect them as If they were
Sensei Sal. If you ever asked me what I would do If I saw someone
disrespect a Sensei I'd think about It for a while as If was directed to me
and my answer was If I ever saw a person disrespect a Sensei right In
Idea what all these Sensei's do they have been In Karate much longer
than you so pull It together so when you are a Sensei you wont want any
body to disrespect you and all the Sensei's that you disrespected and
didn't disrespect you would want the right there with you to back up your
statement. that's what Karate Is It Isn't learning how to pick on someone
that picks on you Its for defense not offense. the best thing to do If you
ever get picked on Is tell someone If he swings and you use their force
against them. make strategy. Karate Is a beautiful technique especially
when you have mastered It. Karate Isn't just fighting It Is much more than
that It Is learning to kick, punch, and block correctly so you don't hurt
yourself or your opponent. you meet good people they can teach katas
bunkais and yakazokus ( all fake fighting basically ) you learn how to use
weapons pressure points and the joints etc. You get a lot of endurance.
you learn how to read someone else's energy once you are a high leveled
belt In Karate then you will truly learn the way of true KARATE!!! But you
have to always practice Is he key to success. I am In karate because It Is
a sport I'm a huge fan of sports and extreme tricking. that Is my whole
life and my entire Identity. without It I wouldn't be who I am today. I am
In karate because I love It and my family and my godfather love It as well
and If I drop out every one will be sad especially my godfather. I like
karate because w e learn self control. Martial arts is and art where we
learn how to control our hits take a hit and how hard to hit an opponent.
Our kusanku katas were made by Sensei kusanku. pasi katas were made
from Tode Sakugawa sensei also chinto. Gojushio kata Chibana sensei.
sensei Nakazato is with all of shorin ryu katas. The katas well you know.
But now back to what karate means to me. Karate is a very deep feeling
for me because the sensei is my godfather! how cool is that! Me and my
family was one of sensei Sals very first student we started to train with
him ever since he was a brown black belt. We did demos and tricks like
gymnastics but much cooler. When I started karate the first time I cried
was when my dad kicked me in the back of my head. (on accident of Sal
when we were done we did one hundred push-ups and one hundred
sit-ups. not fun but muscle building. karate is a merely etiquette sport.
Most people are very fragile so they join. They want to earn how  to do
things they never thought that they could do and actually be good at.
Karate is the best choice I have ever MADE!!!! It made me who I am today.
I love karate don't want to quit something that started my life. If I didn't
do karate I would want to know what my life would be like. No extreme
tricking no self defense teqniques. So yes that's what karate means to me
and I love it a lot never want to quit of be one the verge or near or mostly
hated to be FORCED to be quit!
