||2nd degree Black Belt, Nidan
|Years in Karate:
||My parents signed me up for karate at 8 years old because I originally needed to get into better shape, gain better coordination and improve my balance. Shorinjiyu Kenryukan was directly up the street from where I lived so this was a very convenient choice.
||Being involved in the Kenryukan has not only taught me how to defend myself, but it has also given me a second family besides my own, as well as a father figure and mentor in Hanshi Myron M. Lubitsch.
||Give back to the mudansha of today, the tutelage I have acquired from the past and aid them in becoming the greater yudansha of tomorrow.
