Rydal grandmother becomes black belt

Posted: January 21, 2019

Being promoted to a first degree black belt at 69, Annie Carter is proof that age is just a number. For the past three years, the Rydal resident has trained at Choi Kwang Do Martial Art in Cartersville, trying to earn a black belt by her 70th birthday. "It started with me taking my grandchildren to do martial arts, and I'm sitting there and I'm watching them," Carter said. "Then that April they had a special for parents. If your children are in there, you can take it for a month to see how you like it. Well, I started taking it and I was hooked. I think that was in either 2008 or 2009 and I've been going two or three times a week ever since. [In the past] I've joined health clubs and all these exercise places and you pay for a year and I go two or three months and then I don't feel like going. But this is fun. "I feel like I'm accomplishing something. I didn't even realize it at the time but through the martial arts, through Choi Kwang Do, I've got my blood pressure under control. My diabetes is under control and in the past three years I've lost 44 pounds. So healthwise it has been very effective for me. Before I had problems with my back and thank God, I haven't had an episode since I've been going. And mentally, it keeps me alert. I'm just having fun right now with it."
