In January I’ll begin teaching a new childrens karate class at the Northshore YMCA, in Bothell WA. I’ve come to believe that martial arts instruction can play a significant role in the development of young minds and bodies. Since my background is in Seido Juku, a style of karate founded in New York in 1976 by Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura, my focus derives from its philosophy and principals. However, I believe that similar ideas find expression in many other styles and traditions.
