A Chat with Arts of the Samurai - West
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our classes are based on Agedo Karate and include many of the practical hard, linear movements that exemplify most karate styles, as well as elements from the softer styles such as turning of another’s energy, energy conservation, strategy and circular movements.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Come as you are! Our goal is to provide a safe, fun and enjoyable environment where our students can learn how to protect themselves and others, get in shape, and shape their minds and character. Karate is mental, physical, discipline, and emotional. Agedo encompasses all these aspects.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The key to effective life-skills instruction is fusing traditional martial arts values with cutting-edge development skills. The balance of “old and new” thinking creates a dynamic learning environment that helps karate students to be their best. This is the goal of Arts of the Samurai.
What do you love most about your job?
The students, and the look of satisfaction on the face of an individual when they have achieved success - no matter how small!
