4 Years of Training













Four Years of Tallahassee Karate Club!


December marks the 4th year of Tallahassee Karate Club at North Florida School of Aikido. It's been amazing so far!

I would like to extend a warm thanks to our Aikido brothers and sisters who have shared their wonderful dojo with us these years. It's an awesome dojo and I am very humbled and grateful for the welcome you have extended to us.

I would like to thank our karate students who are so patient with my teaching style, and dedicated enough to come back to training week after week and year after year. You rock!

Also, thanks to all of my training partners, mentors and friends in Kishaba Juku.

And finally, a very special thanks to my teachers: Paris Janos Sensei and Steve Harless Sensei, and their teachers; Kishaba Chokei Sensei, Kishaba Chogi Sensei, and Shinzato Katsuhiko Sensei. Without their efforts, there would be nothing for me to teach, and therefore, no Tallahassee Karate Club.

Domo Arigato Gozaimasu!!!

Here's to many, many, many more years of training!!!

Respectfully,

Bill Lucas
Head Instructor
Tallahassee Karate Club

I'm honored to be a student of yours Lucas Sensei. You've given me a new and better way of looking at martial arts. I feel like I've found my home in our little dojo.
