Hate, Nazis, and Curious kids

What kind of black belt will I be?

Posted by Kamia Mikols on January 15, 2019 at 8:27pm 0 Comments

I hope to be the kind of black belt that someone of any rank can feel comfortable around. I know that when I first started, black belts looked intimidating and I was terrified of messing up in front of them. I want to be a black belt that makes others feel confident and strong. Encouraging them to not be afraid to reach their own goals. This way, they can continue practicing and pass along the advice and lessons they’ve learned on their journeys to others as well.
