When I started to practice Karate, I was nine years old. I started this martial art because in the school that I attended there were Karate lessons and when I was waiting for my mother I saw them practicing and I liked it very much. One day my godmother, that also practiced Karate, invited me to do training. I loved it and asked my mother if I could practice. That’s when it all started.
In karate there are several types of styles that anyone can practice: Goju-Ryu, shotokan, Shito-Ryu, among others. I practice Shotokan. The club where I practice is NKSL (Nucleo Karaté Shotokan Lisboa).
Kumite is the fight, the real combat. You need a lot of intelligence and concentration to know what to do in the different times of the combat.

I love practice Karate and I recommend it to all young people and adults.
