"Through my experience working with youth, I found that youth are more open and willing to accept input and guidance from a person with whom they have a respectful and trusted relationship. I am gaining the trust and respect of both the counselling profession and by being a karate instructor. I promote skill development, self-esteem, self-discipline, and inner strength by emphasizing physical, mental, and emotional practice. I work to build invaluable principles that foster self-respect and self-esteem, which are making positive changes in the lives of many. Karate practitioners grow to respect themselves and others."


Motto: “You will never be brave if you do not get hurt. You will never learn if you do not make mistakes, and you will never be successful if you do not encounter failure.”
