I love Tang Soo Do. I love football. I play for Dutchtown Middle School. I love wrestling. I love lifting weights. I power-lift with my dad, David Hamilton. Basically I love anything physical. But that doesn't mean I slack in school. School is very important to me and I take my grades very seriously. I've been doing karate for several years and it has done a lot for me. Among learning to kick, block and punch, fight, break boards and all the other obvious things, now that I have been doing it for 7 years I can definitely say I am more disciplined. And that helps me focus in school and also helps me excell in all my other sports and gives me an edge.
Defensive Jumping Turn Kick. I like this move because you can do more combos from it if you can land it right. Itís a very powerful move too.
Bruce Lee is my idol and my favorite movie star because heís so wise and he kicks butt!
Favorite Karate Movie Star:
My favorite movie has to be Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because it has a lot of action and it is all so unbelievable yet you catch yourself falling for it sometimes since it was done so well.
Favorite Karate Movie:
I love it all. The more physcial, the better. I especially love competiton. From competitive drills in class to sparring, it's all good.
When I was six years old my parents told me about karate and how they signed me up. I was excited, but when I got there it was better than I thought. Over the years I have made friends like Scott. Heís a Second Degree Black Belt and you need to check out his page or see him in class!

I didnít do any sports at the time believe it or not and I always loved karate movies. I remember I use to act like a ninja and I would try to do back flips on my bed, that didnít work out so well.
Why did you want to learn Karate?
My dream is to be a mixed martial arts UFC competitor.
