Hyper Q&A: Mackensi Emory Talks Holidays & Training
Whatâ€™s your favorite holiday pass time? Going holiday shopping and spending time with my family.
How has martial arts influenced your holiday break? I get to spend more time doing what I loveâ€¦ martial arts training and tricking!
Do you practice during the holiday break? Do you do anything different? Yes I do practice over the break. I actually get to spend more time training because I donâ€™t have any school to worry about. This time of year I am usually perfecting my new forms and tricks for the 2011 season.
Is it hard to keep training during the break? Not really because I look forward to that extra practice time. I donâ€™t mind because I know it will just make me stronger and better. Without schoolwork, I get to put all my focus and energy on my training.
Whatâ€™s the best present youâ€™ve ever received for the holidays? Just having time off and being able to spend time with my family.
What are you wishing you will get this year? Honestly, the presents donâ€™t matter. I am very lucky and already have everything I need. I really just want my family to stay healthy and to have a great year in 2011!
Have you ever done anything to help others during the holidays? Yes. I have done â€œToys for Totsâ€, â€œThe Giving Treeâ€, â€œCans for Kidsâ€, worked at â€œThe Harvest Food Bankâ€ and participated in â€œSantaâ€™s Helpersâ€ for my school. It feels great to be able to give back to other kids and families less fortunate than me and make their days better during the Holidays.
