Imagine training in a dojo (Where someone trains in Martial arts), feet flying, weapons moving, you feel the swish of your belt in the air. After you finish, you are exhilarated at the feeling of doing the technique right. This is what Jacob feels like every time he goes to Karate.

Jacob Brown, 6th grade, studies Martial Arts at Falbo’s Family Karate in Gulf Breeze. He started when he was six years old. Now, since December, Jacob is a 1st degree Black Belt.

Jacob has worked very hard to achieve his goal of Black Belt. Jacob said that he had to “progress through several lower ranked belts… show proficiency in a variety of knowledge and skills, and pass a Black Belt test that lasted three hours, ranging from self-defense to the use of weapons.”

Jacob’s parents also had something to say about their talented son. “We are very proud and excited for his accomplishment. Jacob is a tough kid and will push through adversity to accomplish his goals.”

“One important thing that Karate has taught me,” Jacob said, “Is to persevere.”

Jacob Continues to study Martial Arts at the dojo, and hopes to achieve his second degree Black Belt in the future.
