"I think that Karate training at the Ohio Budokan Dojo in Dayton, Ohio is fun, and with the skills I learned I think that I can now better protect my friends and my older sister (2 years older) from bullies.
Going to Karate training is a good workout on Saturday morning when I'd otherwise be sleeping in or watching TV and with all the years of training I got at the dojo, my parents think that I have accomplished more than my other school friends.
I have also made new friends at the dojo and I feel more confident in my abilities and chances of succeeding at other things. I think that the only other way to experience the Japanese culture and language would be to go live in Japan. For now though I'm happy to train at Ohio Budokan in Dayton." - Elizabeth, GenwaKIDS student
