I have been a martial arts instructor for 26 years now and I love every moment of teaching the art of Karate to people of all ages. I have been training for 40 years as 2017 non-stop with no time off and no breaks. My training has taken me all over the world for competitions, seminars and specialized instruction in the art I love. I am also a freelance writer, videographer and photographer in my spare time. I hope you enjoy my blogs.
At current I hold a Rokudan, 6th Degree Black Belt, in Shorin Ryu Shorinkan under the guidance of Eddie Bethea Kyoshi Hachidan and Minoru Nakazato Hanshi Judan. Since I began training I have various black belt ranks in systems such as Tae Kwon Do (two styles), Jujitsu (three different systems) and others. I also hold black belt rank in Kokusai Rengokai Kobudo (Okinawan Weaponry). Competitively I have won some titles but my primary focus is on traditional Okinawan Karate. I have been blessed to have cross trained in Shotokan, Goju Ryu and other styles of traditional Karate as well.
This blog is just some of my thoughts about martial arts, research and miscellaneous scramblings. I hope you enjoy the content. As always “Damatte Keiko” – Shut Up and Train 🙂
