Miss Kline – How Martial Arts Changed My Life

How Premier Martial Arts Has Impact My Life

Hello my name is Gisele Kline I have been doing Martial Arts for over 4 years now. I started karate when I was eight years old. Premier Martial Arts has impacted my life in a lot of ways from basic classes, to the competition team. I am part of the competition team, Black Belt Training, Leadership, and regular classes.

When I started Karate I was small and I wasn’t athletic, I did A couple sports before but they weren’t something I liked. When I joined I enjoyed the classes, I made friends, and I had a good experience. After a year I started competing, it helped a lot in getting better, since then I’ve been competing for three years. I am a junior black belt and I will be testing for my second degree black belt next year. But for now I have been competing in tournaments.

On top of all that Premier has helped me to become a better person.  They have helped me to reach my goals, work on myself, they have even helped me with respecting others and staying kind.

I am also very thankful for the opportunities they have given me, specifically opportunities such as helping with other classes, helping with younger classes, and more.

 In general Premier Martial Arts has helped me with more than Martial Arts and that’s what I love about it, the instructors, the students, your friends, and even your teammates. They have all had a big impact and support on me since starting. From all the support they’ve given me it’s helped me to work harder. And I’ve definitely improved from when I first started. It has definitely changed my life. Speaking of helping me work harder, My Black Belt test is a good example of helping me get better and It helped me learn.

From eight years old to now I have matured to become an instructor some day, and I wouldn’t be able to do that without premier, Premier has truly helped me lead in front of others and it’s definitely a preparation for the future I don’t know where I would be without them.

Now that I have been here for four years now I have learned to lead, compete, respect, accomplish, take challenges, Work harder, and be a better person. This is why I choose Premier Martial Arts.
