David Brearley

I started karate when I was 5 because my mother thought I was going to get bullied and wouldn't do anything about it because I was very shy. So I started karate to teach me self-defense and how to have more confidence. Three things you may not know about me are that I am #13 in the nation for cross country, I am very good at soccer, and I can run a 5:17 mile.
