Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.

    Some well deserved success! I’m glad ikigaiway could be a part of it. I’ll try to keep mushing visitors your way 🙂

      Thanks, Matt! Any way you can drive traffic is fine with me (mushing, pushing, cattle prod)! Thanks for your help this year! I appreciate the support and, most importantly, for showing me that there is a vast martial arts community that loves to have fun discussing this stuff. I find most people aren’t that interested when I start blabbing about the finer points of katas and cross chokes!
