Personal: started karate at the age of 6. So 16 years total now. The doctor said I was hyper active and suggested they put me into a sport that would tire me and at the same time teach me decision. He said karate would be a great idea. So my mom took me to the nearest dojo to my house. (15 min walk)...I have a karate Vlog on YouTube @arielkarate1. I play the trumpet. I love ping pong and watch Anime
