Denys is a 10-year-old boy who has been doing karate for three years. The fact that he has down syndrome does not prevent him from participating in sports and being well-socialized.
It all began when Denys' coach Nataliya encouraged interested children to try karate. She then invited them all to stay in the program. In total, there are five kids with special needs in the school including Denis who belongs to the senior group.
Nataliya is confident that Denys will become a great athlete one day: "He will be taking part in national competitions for the next several years. Then he can start performing at the international level".
