Mr. Carnahan says…

“National Karate training has helped me to develop my body, mind and character for the better. What I’ve learned from this program has most certainly improved my quality of life. NK, for me, has been absolutely transformative. I was raised with the idea that helping others is life’s highest priority. Teaching karate is an opportunity to share information and processes that make people stronger, more aware, and more resourceful. I love seeing people succeed and achieve their goals. National Karate makes people better, and it’s an honor to be able to facilitate that.”
