I am new to this and hope you bear with me.My Father always wanted me to take interest in his passion and love of karate(its what he lived for),however being young at the time i had no interest.Unfortunately shortly after my father passed away...I realized when it was too late that their wasnt anyone I would have rather been taught by than my own father.I know nothing than he was a black belt,had competed when he was younger and had visited japan.Also that he taught karate for years in our basement and had many students over the years.Please if anyone knows anything about my dads life in karate,who he learned from or anything about him and his experiences and achievments in karate would mean more to me than i could ever explain....sincerely, a daughter trying to get to know her father...
