I'm sure there are karate-ka(students) amongst us.. come forward and share ur experiences here.
personally, karate has changed my life a lot. Apart from physical fitness, it gave me confidence, self control and a lot of patience.
My MBA has come in between my classes, so cudnt level up to the black belt.
I trained in chennai, under Renshi Rethinam - 7 dan black belt. he is the head of Shorin Ryu karate in India, and a member of the shorin ryu world council.. am proud to have attended classes taken by the Renshi.
I'm a Green-II in shorin-ryu style.
