Children can be our guides in so many ways and I am particularly grateful for the fact that my oldest son, a child at the time, guided me into the study martial arts. One evening, in 1984, while watching him in his class, it occurred to me that rather than just sit and watch, I ought to participate. Began classes in January 1985, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. In January 1991 I had the honor of receiving a black belt.
I have been a Spanish teacher, a buyer for Dillard¹s, a paralegal and now I farm. All of these pursuits have been enjoyable and I have learned much from each one, but the best one was teaching martial arts in my beloved Dojo.
