Here are some pictures taken at yesterday’s training at ZenQuest Martial Arts Center in Lenox, MA. Senseis Mark and Connie Flynn graciously hosted a great seminar. Teaching at the seminar were Ed DeCosta, Jean DeCosta, and Mike Kostyshak from the DeCosta’s Okinawan Karate School in North Attleboro, MA.
The crisp preview of fall air in the Berkshires made for a nice day for training. Everyone worked hard and learned a lot, myself included. Here’s hoping we can all get together soon!

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.
