Karate, Fitness and me
At the age of 6 in the year 1993, I was inspired to learn Karate. My inspirations were my grandfather and father who themselves were involved in Stick fencing & Kusthi – a form of Indian martial arts and Wrestling. My uncle was a Karate master (Shihan Obulesh) which made me join Karate initially in theyear1993.
Bruce Lee the renowned martial arts legend has been a major role in my life as I started learning Karate. Initially, I learned Karate for fitness and self-defense. Later on, through the regular practice of Karate, I understood there is so much more to learn, it is vast and deep as an ocean, and is infinite. Karate is learned for self-defense, mental & physical fitness. It improves the overall personality of a person which includes discipline, patience, and good morals. For me Karate is not just martial art or sport, it is a part of my daily life and routine.
