Kieran Takacs from Seascale has been practising karate with us since February 2016 and is showing some real talent. He is a member at our Gosforth dojo and joined at the same time as his father Sam, for some quality 'dad and lad' time! Polite, hard working and always with a smile on his face, Kieran is a great example for our other junior members and it's a pleasure to have him in the dojo...
Why did you start karate?
I thought it would be a really good experience! I was interested in learning how to do karate and I also wanted to get fit and strong.
What do you enjoy most about our club?
I love learning different techniques and training with the other members in class.
What benefits have you gained from regular training?
Controlling anxiety, gaining confidence becoming more focused.
What goals do you have for the future?
I would like to continue progressing through the ranks and continue learning new techniques.
What message would you give to others who may be looking to start martial arts?
Anyone can start karate, you don't need to be special. And anything you don't think you can do, the instructors will show you how - they're all very helpful!
