Martial arts is more than just an activity for me; it is a way of life and has been ever since my early training in Judo and Kendo more than 40 years ago planted the seed that blossomed into a lifetime commitment. I am currently a 5th Degree Black Belt in Kenpo Karate. As Northern Regional Director for Flaherty’s Kenpo Karate Association, I understand the importance of Customer Service.
I have been with Flaherty’s Kenpo Karate for many years now, and I believe very strongly in the quality system we have to offer. My business partnership with Grandmaster Flaherty for the San Jose Studio location began in December, 2006, and I look forward to many more years of keeping our system here in San Jose for all to benefit and enjoy. Our “no-nonsense” system of Self Defense is effective, intuitive and works for people of all ages and sizes.
