Marta Coral an athlete and martial artist.
My name is Marta Coral and I am an athlete and martial artist, my Passion is kungfu and sanda (kungfu combat) I am champion of Spain 8 times. This martial art has made me know myself like never before.
How did you develop your love for kungfu?
Before I was a person who did not trust myself, I was easily manipulated, I did not know how to say no. Since I practiced this noble art, I have managed to bring out the best version of myself, which was there, but asleep. Now I am passionate, humble, and determined, I overcome fears every day, especially now when I am afraid of something I want to do it, nothing slows me down, if I fall I get up as many times as necessary.
What attracted you to the Kungfu of all other sports?
It attracted me that Kung-Fu brings me life and knowledge of myself. Every time I think about how to define it, it’s harder for me because it changes people. It is a philosophy. It is a martial art, anaerobic, and therapeutic exercise. It is a way of meeting people, of having friends, of having a family. I was attracted by the nobility it has, the non-envy, the simplicity in everything that is to say not thinking.
Being yourself in the movements, I was attracted by the beauty it has, the delicacy as well as strength and claw, the culture, the thousands of years of tradition, that kungfu was the beginning of martial arts in the world.
