Why I Train, with Eli Hall

One of the best experiences I’ve had in martial arts was my first trip to Japan in 2010. I was 19 years old and had never left Florida before. During that trip I competed in the Renshinkan International Friendship Tournament and met people from all over the world who are as passionate as I am about karate. That experience inspired me to continue to travel, and every year I make it a priority to plan a trip to train or compete.
