2006 - current Grand River Karate
Member, 2nd Degree black belt in Shido-kan Beikoku Association
Kids class instructor
Why I started
I started when my daughter wanted to try other physical activities besides team sports. I was a good friend with a former Sensei that recommended Grand River Karate to me. Starting as a white belt in the parent’s class has helped me maintain my health and I’ve made many friends along the way.
Why I like Shido-kan
I like the breakdown of goals and the need for continual improvement. The cooperative and friendly environment have made learning and teaching fun.
What I enjoy about teaching
I love passing on the knowledge I've gained to help others better themselves. Seeing others improve helps give a sense of accomplishment that I've assisted in getting them to their goal. Answering questions helps me to break down the moves during explanation that helps me to learn as well.
