Karate has given them the drive to achieve more and set higher goals for themselves, not just in Kenpo, but in all aspects of their lives.
My daughter stared in Kenpo when she was 6 years old, now she is 14 with a junior black belt. It has been an unbelievable journey to watch this kid, who has always struggled with her confidence, making it hard for her to interact socially and academically. Over the years, we watched her grow and gain the confidence she needed to believe in herself through Karate. In this Pasadena Jeff Speakman Kenpo studio, she found the loving support she needed from every single one of her Sensei's to succeed and in succeeding, she found her way...she became the confident young lady we see today. Now, my son has followed in her footsteps brilliantly gaining the same discipline and confidence he also struggled with. He is determined to achieve his black belt status as well. Karate has given them the drive to achieve more and set higher goals for themselves, not just in Kenpo, but in all aspects of their lives. It's been and still is a great journey.
