Personal: I started Karate at the age of 4. My aunt was my first Sensei, and at the time my entire family practiced Karate. My grandfather practiced many martial arts, and he always believed in having the ability to defend ourselves if a situation deemed it necessary. As I grew up, my love for Karate continued to grow. I particularly admire how artistic and expressive Kata can be in our sport....Three things you may not know about me is that I like to dance, I really enjoy photography, and I love taking scenic videos during my travels.
