First Degree Black Belt
Rank: First Degree Black Belt
Years in karate: 14 years
Step out of your box and train with a smile. A fight is the most uncomfortable event in anyone’s life. Train to get in and out of it unharmed by taking the little uncomfortable moments in a positive way. This can be everything from yelling in a sparring class to delivering a full bear hug attack to another person during class. This way a fight is an easier experience.
An Interesting Thing About Myself:
I was introduced to martial arts for the first time from Power rangers and Ninja Turtles in the 1990’s.
Favorite Karate Move:
Elbow strike, hits hard from any angle and blocks even harder. Nothing stops a kick or punch like a firm elbow.
