In 1989, I was approached by a fellow Martial Artist and asked if I would like to be part of a new Martial Arts School (Dojo). I immediately said yes and HIRYU BUSHIDO KAI (HBK) became a very important part of my life and also my Wife and Children. It was a comfort for me to know that my 3 Ladies had a better than average chance of defending themselves in a bullying or worse situation. This April coming, we will be celebrating 30 years of teaching Adults and Children self defense, self esteem and physical fitness. Over the years, the Instructors at HBK have dealt with students with Autism, Tourette’s, Epilepsy and Down’s Syndrome and hopefully made a difference in their lives. By the way, the fellow who asked for my help 30 years ago was Hanshi Fred Walker “8th Dan” and I am Renshi Brian Norrish “6th Dan”. Drop by our Dojo and see what we do or, even better, bring your Kids and get on the floor and try a workout.
See you at the Dojo.
