My karate journey began when i was a kid around the age 12 that is when i began my karate studies under sensei johnny rhodes and shihan John arena which i have been training with since Sensei rhodes retirement several years ago. I have been under the same instructor shihan john arena for over 30 years and continue my expansion of my karate knowledge with his instruction and with the assistance of hanshi cezar borkowski and kyoshi marion manzo of northern karate in Toronto Canada.
The study of karate and martial arts in general has been one of my greatest gift i have been given.
Focusing on basic moments, physical fitness, body conditioning, and katas.
Katas are the origins of self defense. Understanding the difference between self defense and combat is important because of how they work together and knowing their differences is critical.
