A Chat with Marin Goju Karate-Do
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Using the practice of Goju Karate , we focus on each students individual character to help them develop at their own pace and reach their goals. With each class, your child will become physically stronger, improve their discipline & focus, and make friendships all while learning a self defense.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Believe in yourself and you have already won! The hardest part is stepping into the Dojo. There is nothing to fear. Enter into a space where you are safe to learn, be your own person, and learn something new that you can carry within you for your entire life.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Traditional Karate is a jewel. Karate has so many different benefits such as self defense and fitness. However, through regular practice it can polish the character, helping students reach their fullest potential. It's this transformation in the student that has inspired me to teach Karate.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the face of a student when they have an "Aha" moment and suddenly realize a movement that they struggled with is now not such a challenge! Those small successful steps create large rewards in the individual. It's a great part of teaching the martial arts.
