Anne-Marie told ABC Radio
her karate training has had everything to do with her success as a pop star.
"You don't think that those two would relate so much but they totally do," she said. "Literally everything I feel like I learned in karate has helped this career."
"I had the shortest attention span you could ever imagine before I started karate, I couldn't really focus on anything," Anne-Marie added. "If I lost at something, I'd just give up....that was the kind of attitude that I had before I started karate."
But her training, she continued, "taught me to not give up and keep trying hard. Self-discipline is a massive part of who I am now."
