About Me

Hi! My name is Kate. Two years ago, I enrolled in a once-weekly Kempo Jiujitsu class. Two years later, I’m now going to four classes a week, have survived Kempo Camp, and am hoping to earn my brown belt in a few months.

This journey has positively affected my entire life. I’m more physically active than ever, and am always looking for new ways to help me to my rank goal; a journey I’ve dubbed The Road to Brown Belt.

In addition to pushing myself physically, I’ve been exploring my emotional and mental health as well. I’ve enrolled in new training courses to broaden my career path, and I’ve been working hard on being honest with my emotional well-being (which is hard AF, you guys).

My main goal with this blog is to let others know that they aren’t alone in their struggles, and to celebrate each victory, large and small.
