Karate is more than just kicking and punching, it can be a way of life. Our family has been training together for 11 years, and we have all grown so much. We like to think that karate is the reason we all are so close today. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we have been thinking about things we are thankful for. Our family is thankful for the common ground that karate has given us. We are thankful for the part we play in all our students' lives in teaching them something that has touched us so much. Martial artists come from all walks of life. We have police officers, nurses, firemen, engineers, military, teachers, and the list could go on!
