It’s me, Orli again. Today I am going to tell you about my Karate lessons I had last year, when I was in grade 1. Some of the moves we learned was how to kick, how to punch and how to fight. Of course, we were only at the beginners level. But, it was very fun to learn.
Let me tell you how to do these moves properly. To do a good punch, you must put your thumb in your fist, that way your thumb stays secure and doesn’t get injured. When you kick, you make two fists, one in the back and one in the front. The fist in front of you is to protect your head, which might help you not get a concussion.
This karate course happened every wednesday at my school. My classmates and I met in the gym and learned it for 8 weeks. In the end, all of us got belts. I got the white belt and the belt that has both white and yellow on it. I earned 2 of them because I got the chance to pass two levels. 🙂
In the end, we did a performance and even all the parents came to watch us. It was an amazing experience. And here are some photos. Please also check a short video from the performance.
