What motivated and inclined you to Karate?

I have always loved sports. In school, I was a track athlete of 100/200 meters and I used to play Volleyball and Kabbadi. Later in college, I was in the basketball team and post that I did my NCC. So while I was modelling and acting, I really felt the need to connect with some sport. I wanted to try martial arts, which would make me strong physically and mentally and Karate was the right choice. Girls are generally complimented for beauty and brains but I craved for the brawn.
