Senpai Tom Scott

Both Tom and the Academy of Classical Karate have seen years of growth and have come far from their humble beginnings. Tom is in pursuit of World and Olympic dreams he has had since starting Karate, and has enjoyed every adventure thus far. For Tom, Karate has always been a big communicator with God, and through it he looks forward to learning more on each journey.

My advice for junior athletes is to be patient. Don't get discouraged by a loss. Our greatest performances are often spurred by a loss, so welcome the opportunity to grow. I wouldn’t trade my history, losses, or silver medals for anything; they became my character. If nothing can discourage you, what can stop you? Right now you should be learning lessons. Heck, we'll always be learning lessons. Analyze your performances so you can improve by not making the same mistakes, and keeping what you do well. Again be patient and hungry. Remember to stay humble because your time is coming.
