What’s your name, how old are you, and how old were you when did you start taking our Kung Fu Martial Arts classes in Bellevue?
My name is Annie. I am currently 10 years old, and I started taking Martial Arts Kung Fu Little Dragons classes here when I was around three and a half. Actually, I didn’t decide, my parents brought me here, and I just sort of got to swing at things.

What I like is probably groundwork. I was training so hard because, when I thought about it, I was preparing myself to defend myself from a bully, probably in middle school or high school. I am probably stronger than when I started … I’m probably stronger now than when I started Kung fu.

Why do I continue to do Kung fu? Probably … Honestly, I don’t know. It’s just into my routine now, so I’m just … Like every Tuesday and Thursday, and Saturday, I get up, go to school, and go to Kung Fu Class. If it’s the summer. Go home, and this is for Tuesdays and Thursdays, relax a little bit, maybe eat dinner, get my uniform on, come to Kung Fu, head back home, take a shower, go to bed.

Saturdays, I just wake up, eat breakfast, get into my martial arts uniform, come here, and then just do whatever I do for the rest of the Saturday. If it’s a Saturday, I look forward to doing groundwork, but if it’s a normal Tuesday and Thursday, it’s either the fan or maybe my jumping jacks. I thought this was fun.

What rank am I? I am currently a black belt. I’m not sure if I’m a first degree or not, honestly, confused. I’m still deciding between two, it’s either astronaut because it was always my dream to do that since I was little. Well, actually, it’s three, astronomer … I don’t know how to say it.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Astronomer, thank you. Maybe just come here and work for you. If I was a superhero, I’d be Black Widow. Kung fu means to work overtime to achieve something.
