How old were you when you started studying martial arts? Why did you want to begin?
Mr. Streicher: "I was 13 years old and because I wanted to learn self-defense against bullying."
Mr. Cousar: "I was 24 years old and because I wanted to do something new."
Ms. Collins: "I was 5 years old and because I wanted to be like the pink power ranger."
Mr. McLester: "I was 9 years old and I started because I thought it looked cool."
Mr. Linehan: "I was 9 years old and I started because my dad made me."
Ms. Urban: "Well, I actually started twice. First when I was 8 years old and that was because my old siblings and dad were doing it, however, I quit after a few belts. The second time I started I was 24 years old and I started again because I was babysitting someone who came to Karate Charlotte and I decided I wanted to finish and get my black belt."
When did you start, and why did you want to?
