I became interested in martial arts as a way to empower myself, having been a victim of a violent crime.
Initially I chose the Takeo Ryu Training Center because the classes are affordable.
My training began fall 2012 and I received a warm, supportive welcome.
I enjoy training under Shihan Ken Keith because he is encouraging, precise, and shares his knowledge and skills with the community.
The dojo offers personal instruction. No one is left out. I enjoy learning practical techniques.
Other benefits include increased stamina and decreased fear.
Ultimately I aspire to obtain balance like the Shaolin Monks.
