Individual Needs

There are not a lot of teachers these days that will work with their students that have “disabilities”, but Sensei Russell was able to show me different ways to do throws or holds to accommodate mine!

Years of Fun

My daughter has tried multiple sports throughout the years. Each time she enjoyed the sport for a few practice sessions and then had to be forced to complete the season. When she asked to try karate I agreed under the conditions that she had to complete a year. Fourteen months [now three years!] later and she still loves going to class!
