Rishab, a 7th grader at Heritage Middle School, began karate at the Y when he was 5, following his father’s recommendation that it would be a good skill for his son to learn. His favorite part of his karate training is sparring with fellow students. Rishab’s enthusiasm also inspired his 8-year-old sister, Ritika, to join. She is a green belt.
