Robert Taylor, owner and head instructor at Robert Taylor's Shudo-Kan Karate, has a simple philosophy on teaching martial arts and fitness: "We make it fun," he says. "We understand each person has a different pace, so we push them at their pace, not the pace of the other person." He carries that style of teaching over into all of his classes, from training kids in the earliest steps of karate to helping adults get fighting-fit with muay thai or Zumba classes. He rounds out the schedule with judo, grappling, and weapons form classes, giving students a complete spectrum of training in martial arts both ancient and modern.
