One of the things I like about karate is that there is a real community spirit in the karate world. If you are willing to try hard then people higher than you will help you and in turn you help the people below you. Also, if I have had a stressful or difficult day at school karate allows me to leave all of that behind and just concentrate on doing my very best in that lesson. I find this really helpful when I have been doing exams in school! I really hope you think about joining karate as you can make friends, de-stress and learn something new!
