How Martial Arts effected my life:

I began studying martial arts with Grandmaster Samane at the age of 46 so that my son would continue to learn karate. That was 11-1/2 years ago. For the last 4-1/2 years, I have been teaching at the PMA studio in Berwyn. Martial arts has provided a common activity for my son and I to talk about and practice together. It has also provided a forum to provide our students with the skills needed to become productive community leaders. The martial arts journey continues to improve my ability to face the fears and tensions that I encounter through living. This in turn continues to improve the clarity and intensity of intention, awareness and mindfulness with which I address life’s ongoing challenges.
