Why I Started 

I love martial arts and found Grand River Karate when I was looking for a dojo for my children. Right at the start, I thought this place is for me to begin my martial arts journey.

Why I like Shidokan
For me, Shidokan is a "Zen in motion" way of life. The natural movements, the fluidity of the techniques, the exceptional speed and power generated from relaxation and body coordination all make it a beautiful and effective martial art. 

What I Enjoy About Teaching
I can reach a higher level of learning when I teach.
