ABOUT KARATE FAMILIES
Karate Families was established in 2008. I began learning Martial Arts in the winter of 1991 in New York City. I moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and began working in Martial Arts in the spring of 2001.
After several years I opened Karate Families with the mission to bring all the wonderful lessons that karate has taught to me, and share it with as many others as I can. I believe in learning through play. I am certain that the lessons that children learn in Karate spill over into every aspect of a child’s life – from the way they approach their school to their social interaction with peers. Karate teaches perseverance, goal setting, and achievement. How much better is a person’s life when they have the skill of completing what they start?

I grew up in northern California. I was very poor and we struggled through most of my early life. While I was living on a farm in Placerville, CA, I saw a famous TV show that was shot in Manhattan, NY. I decided I wanted to be an actor and move there to pursue my dreams. I attended college in NYC and lived there for 10 years.
