ABOUT SENSEI TONY & MORE

"I started karate training for the same reasons a lot of young people do. I wanted to be able to defend myself and I also had a very romantic view of the martial arts. I was the hero that came to the rescue. All 120 pounds of me. However, that changed a little bit in the actual training. I still find karate to be a source of inspiration that God used to motivate and inspire my life."
