Bio: Karate has been a big part of my life. I have been training under my Dad, Grandmaster Moran, since I was two years old. I am 23 now and I train almost every day of my life. I believe karate is not just about techniques and self-defense, but also a way of life. Karate helps improve one’s concentration, mental and physical health, respectfulness, and much more. Karate has helped me become who I am today, and I believe I can help the younger generation become wise, successful, kind members of society by teaching them what it means to be a true martial artist. Osu!
