“The one word I would use to sum up what National Karate martial arts training has done for me would be confidence. I spent much of my childhood shying away from pressure of any kind, but through my training I learned to master my fears so they would not control me. That is a lesson I have carried with me my entire life!

The most rewarding thing about teaching for me is getting to see my students benefit from this training in many of the same ways I know I have. I believe God put me on this earth to be a teacher and every time I witness a student overcome an obstacle in their life because of this training that believe is confirmed!”
