Some Inspiration for us all

Hi, my name is Aden and I'm 7. Sensei Walther and Sensei Gary have been showing me for almost a whole year now how to be strong by being proud of myself. They teach me Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing and even some Kung Fu.

I used to be really shy to talk in class at school but not now. Now I never stop talking (but my mom says I should give other people a chance),but I'm just making up for lost time. With my Dad's job, we move lots and I used to be scared about starting new.

Now I walk with my chin up so high I smell the clouds and I'm not scared about being new anymore. My martial arts has given me the power to stand up to bullies too by being a strong boy, so I use my power to stand up for other kids too. Then I tell them to come join so they can be so strong like me. 

I also like that my Dad, my big brother Alex and me all go together. I'm always gonna be doing this stuff for a long time no matter what, ‘cause Sensei Walther told me "to never give up", and I won't.
