Our first student blog

A kata a day keeps the failure away

posted: 29 June 2017

My name is Matilda and I am nine years old my hobbies are cricket, karate, brownies and playing the flute.

I started karate doing a taster session in the Summer term of 2014. Because I loved it I wanted a go at doing a proper session.

It was a bit overwhelming at first but it got better as I started to do even more sessions and go up in my grades.

My advice: never give up even if something is hard because you will get there

Practise, then you will get better.

Listen to Sensei. Take getting told off as a positive thing!
