Lessons Learned in Our Karate Class

March 5, 2008

JJS Karate Website: http://jjskaratedojo.tripod.com/

Kicks, punches, blocks and bows–these develop physical skills and self-discipline and strengthen one’s character.

That’s what karate is all about. It is a subject that requires toughness but become the most favorite subject and sports in Jack and Jill School. At an early age of 6, we are required to attend karate class under sensei Randy Mengullo as part of the school curriculum.

Thrilling, difficult but exciting–that’s our karate period. Proper punches and kicks are scored. It is your bad day if you receive a hit from an opponent during training but you get your lucky day, too, when praised by the teacher ad you realize that “It’s not how you win or lose but how you played the game that counts”.

Muscle pains are usual after effects. And one’s day is not complete if he fails to improve techniques as he joins the sparring session.

Jack & Jill School Karate Dojo in Bacolod City

Jack & Jill School Karate Dojo in Bacolod City

Constant training and self-discipline are highly required ofus because we also believe that “what we sow, we reap”. That’s is why, we became achievers in karate, like during the recent tournament sponsored by ATLETA-Philippine National Police on September 8. Participated in by different clubs and school in Western Visayas. Our School earned a gold medal in kata (forms) through Rodolfo Torrato Jr. and kumite (sparring0 through Krizia Vinzon and Ann Margaret Apostol. The school also earned three silver and five bronze medals.

The beauty of it all is while we are trained to protect ourselves, we have the opportunity to achieve something. In our young minds, karate plays an important role. But while we may win, we do not boast; our feet stay firm on the ground. That’s what we learn in our karate class. That’s how we are trainedin school.STARLIFE Sunday/Young Lives: Lauren Lynn Cavile
