“I wanted my daughter to learn karate and was required to participate because she is under 16 years old. Karate is completely different than I thought. Now I make regular practice and love it!” – Juanita Licea, San Jose

“After practice all the busy thoughts of the workday are gone. My mind is clear. It’s a great feeling physically and mentally.” – Leo Gutierrez, San Jose
