Black Belts

Throughout the past 7 years I have been a member of Cecil's Korean Martial Arts Centre in Blind River Ontario. Not only has the club taught me Hap-ki-do, it has given me valuable life skills which have aided me in other sectors of my life. Leadership, self-confidence, and better overall health are just a few of the amazing things the club has given me. 

I am 15 years old. I have been participating and learning karate for almost seven years now. Karate is a very useful sport to learn. Not only is it useful, but also very fun, exciting and also at times, a little frustrating.

Hi my name is Amber Lyn MacDonald. I am 12 years old and I joined Karate when I was 4 years old but I had been watching the class for 2 years prior to joining since my older brother Shane was in Karate. Sir Cecil & Mam Linda took me under their wings since I was so small. They even let me stand beside them at the front of the Class.

By getting my black belt it means the world to me and my family, my mother and father both had their black belts and it feels good to follow their footsteps.

I joined karate for my remission from Leukemia Cancer. It was said to help with my immune system and recovery, for my bodies fitness and health.

To me, receiving my Black Belt means more than just the fact that I dedicated 8 years of my life to the sport, it means a great accomplishment. Getting my Black Belt is a feat conquered; I have worked so hard inside the club and out to be where I am today.

To receive a black belt would be a great honor. To receive a black belt would means that I have worked hard throughout my years as a student to Cecil's Korean Martial Arts and have achieved many goals.

A black belt is not just something you are handed. It takes Hard Work, Focus, Self-Confidence and Discipline. It means Honour, Respect, and Responsibility.
