Sensei David is currently a junior at Desert Vista HS.  His future plans at this time are to probably go to NAU to study Bio-Medical engineering .  His favorite subject in school is US History and least favorite is Math.
Sensei David started taking karate when he was 8 years old and there was only one brief time where he thought that he might want to quit but he didn’t.  He kept going and earned his black belt last November.  He currently teaches some of the kumite classes on Wednesdays.  Good thing because kumite is his favorite aspect in karate.
