Since the age of six, I have trained in the art of Okinawan Karatedo GōJū Ryu, a style that was founded by Chōjun Miyagi—yes, the Miyagi who was portrayed by Pat Morita in the original Karate Kid film.
I have been an instructor and a black belt since 2013. In this blog, I want to impart some of the wisdom and knowledge I’ve acquired over the years, as well as share my stories and experiences; from “how to defend yourself” to “the time I kicked someone in the ass, literally.”
I do not claim to be an expert. I am a humbled martial arts practitioner who hopes to spread awareness about the importance of self-defense training, continue to study and learn from the world of martial arts and above all, conduct research for my work-in-progress novel.
The advice and opinions I express in these blogs are from my experience or from the research I have done. I am always open to a good debate or conversation to broaden my horizons, but please be respectful.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”Aristotle
I am not a martial arts expert. I am a humbled practitioner, and I continue to study, learn and grow as I dive deeper into my research.
