I started training in Goju Karate in 1989, I achieved the rank of Shodan. The aspects I really enjoyed to begin with were Goju kata and the rush of physical exertion needed for Martial Arts. In 1995 I started training in Goju Jiu Jitsu and have achieved the rank of Sandan (3rd Degree Black Belt). I have traveled the world and participated in many World Kubodo events where I have met like minded martial artists that I consider some of my best friends still. Today my responsibilities mostly include the administration that keeps this dojo open year after year.
