Courtney’s Black Belt Essay
Next Step Martial Arts Experience
One day when I passed Next Step Martial Arts, I knew it looked cool. My brother and I decided to join. After we joined, we went through so many obstacles to achieve our one goal, the black belt. We went through all 10 belts including the “no belt”. Achieving the black belt would be the best accomplishment I ever had. Also, I had wanted to quit because I didn’t think that I could do this. I thought for sure that I would fail, but with all of the help that I’ve been getting from Master Jay and the instructors, I feel confident and I’m going to persevere through the test.
My family and friends have helped me through hard times when I’m thinking that I couldn’t do it. They encouraged me, told me I am AWESOME, I can do it and that I am strong!
My experience going through with this is amazing because it has made me more confident and respectful of myself. The date June 25, 2016 will be a part of my life that I will always remember. This day is so exciting! My family and my friends have encouraged me and I am super happy and excited about that.
