Martial Arts students display their skills at fall championship

Published: Monday, December 31, 2012 at 06:15 PM.

Some of the young students have picked up the techniques quickly. Baker resident Cariann Diaz, 13, said she only trained in martial arts for less than a year when she won second place in the 11- to 13-year-old sparring competition.

“I was actually really nervous at first,” said Diaz, who attends Morgan’s Martial Arts. However, through hard work and focus, she has picked up the skills and learned some life lessons along the way.

“It has definitely showed me how to better protect myself ... and make me more aware of my surroundings,” she said.
