    I was enrolled in dance classes

    since I could walk. But I met my true love at a showcase when I was 6. I told my grandmother, as soon as I wiped the drool off my face, that the dance I saw the synchronized group in white gi's perform was the most beautiful one of all, and that I had to learn it. That is how I...

    Train On

    We are going to have a school wide "competition" soon. Also promotions are coming and i'm debating if I want to promote or not. I kind of do because it's unfair to my opponent for them to pair me with someone who has just begun karate, but i'm not really doing all this for belt...
