"Make friends with karate!"
Seikichi Iha, Hanshi

Shido Kan Kanji

We are family. A common interest in the martial arts has pulled together a very diverse group of individuals. Instructors serve as positive role models for the kids. We learn much about each other, the lives we live and our families. What affects one of us will affect all of us. In addition to working out in the dojo, we gather after the seminars and classes for informal time together. Members volunteer their homes or a favorite meeting spot is chosen. Food, other interests and future plans are shared and discussed. Informal training session are arranged.
