Why I Started
My husband went to one class at GRK and then didn’t stop raving about how great it was for the next two hours after he got home! I went to the next class with him, and we’ve been a part of the club ever since.
Why I Like Shido-kan
I like that it is natural movement, but with focus of mind and body. There’s a right way to do things, but not just one right way.
What I Enjoy About Teaching
I first started helping out with the kids’ class ‘cause small children scare me! Give me teenagers any day! I really like watching the kids figure out their first katas and gain confidence.
