So today i’ll be doing something quite different than my usual posts.
Ever since i started this blog, a lot of my wonderful friends whom i met through this WP community have suggested that i write a post about why did i start blogging.
Well, here it is.
First i would like to thank all my friends who suggested this post:
First i will give a brief introduction about myself for those who don’t know me yet.
I am a 18 years old Lebanese boy who’s been born and raised in Tripoli in Lebanon.
My father and uncle are both Arabian singers and actors.
Since i was a little kid i have always loved comic books and rock and roll music.
I also love to draw and write novels.
i like crime and thriller stories and i love history.
Now let’s move on and start with our main question for this post.
Why did i start this blog?
When i was a kid, i suffered a lot from bullying; in ways that no one can imagine.
The problem was that i never told my parents about it because i thought that it’ll be better if i stood up for myself.
When i was about seven years old, my father started me in karate lessons.
i achieved the blue belt and left the karate dojo.
Still, i kept on suffering from bullying at school.
My dad wanted me to keep up my karate lessons because he used to do the same when he was a kid, since my grandfather was a bodybuilder so it kinda runs in our family to do sports.
I kept on hiding all my pain for a couple of years until the day my mom found out what was going on with me at school.
My father couldn’t take it and he went to my school and confronted the school supervisor.
Eventually, the bullies got what they deserved, but that didn’t stop them from hurting me.
How did i discover the legendary Bruce Lee?
My father tried in so many ways to talk me into doing martial arts.
So he brought me Bruce Lee’s movies; and that was my leap of faith.
I was astonished by his speed and wisdom; he was a living legend and i learned more about his lifestyle.
That is where it all started; my journey with martial arts.
I first practiced Kung Fu for a short time, then i moved to Aikido.
After that, i started with Kickboxing and i’m still practicing it to this day.
Throughout what i’ve learned from my idol Bruce Lee, i found out that i don’t have to fight those bullies because i have nothing to prove to them. Because Bruce Lee gave me self-confidence.
How did i discover the WP community?
I actually discovered this community after my English teacher encouraged me to create a blog.
She was really supportive and she advised me to share my skills with other bloggers.
I started with a few Kung Fu posts and worked my way up there.
Then i met awesome bloggers who soon became my friends and to be honest, even words fail to describe how supportive they were.
And so, the Martial Path blog was created and it shall always continue on entertaining readers throughout my Bruce Lee articles and my novels.
So, allow me to thank all these amazing bloggers who made this blog happen:
