The journey has been wrought with bliss, friendship, disappointments, in other words, a true slice of life. As a teenager, I became interested in martial arts, but never had the means to join a formal martial arts school. Sure, I read a few books, but did not follow up on my thoughts of joining. Actually, I hardly ever heard the word of the word karate – my loss.
Well, after graduating from college, I decided to finally join a martial arts school. That one was on Bay Parkway in Brooklyn, NY. under the leadership of Sensei Tamon Kashimoto. From there, the whirlwind journey began.
All I can say is that I would never have met so many incredible people, made and kept friendships for decades, visited the places that I only dreamed of visiting.
If I had to do it again, I would. I would recommend others to take the opportunity to do the same, the journey is worth it.
