Well, I love karate but I just can’t hold it together for the entire class. I am the youngest in the class and that makes me stand out even more. I try really hard and I love going to the class. It has been 7 months since I started and the teacher awarded me an “Advanced White Belt” black stripe on my belt today. The next belt it yellow and all the other kids in class but one girl and me were advanced. At least I got something. I was glad that I was recognized for my hard effort and not I just have to get my focus in check just a bit more. Some of the other kids are moving up to the intermediate class and that should allow me to be less wound up. I am hoping for my yellow belt by the end of the school year.
