I have been practising karate for 5 years now and Iâ€™m about to go for my Junior Shodan promotion. However before I do, I would like to acknowledge how Shiryodo Karate has helped me and what I like about it.
Firstly, every lesson I participate in is always different. In my opinion this adds a certain level of excitement and fun to the junior classes which keeps students focused and cheerful. I also regularly attend Wednesday Kata class which is primarily focused on improving your technique. Even though I have only started this class recently it has already had a big impact on my ability.
The Shiryodo Karate community is warm and welcoming. Over the years I have made numerous friends that help make lessons more enjoyable. All the Shihans, Senseis and Senpais are all very qualified and have taught me so much. I am proud and grateful to be a part of this inspiring group of people of all ages and backgrounds at the dojo.
Shiryodo has shaped me into the person I am today and I cannot wait to go for my junior black belt grading.
