Mr. Shonka says…

“National Karate training has contributed to my physical abilities such as flexibility, strength, agility, and mental/emotional strengths like confidence, ability to speak and present publicly and high self-esteem. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is guiding and observing the student’s development of life skills such as confidence, discipline, situational awareness, etc. There is great benefit in helping students set, work toward, and achieve short and long-term goals.”
