I have always been interested in martial arts but for some reason I did not make the decision to try it out until I seen the benefits that my two daughters gained from joining Dojo Karate. Bringing my daughters to karate and watching them progress through their belts and seeing the way the instructors taught and worked with not only my girls but every other student in the Dojo was what inspired me to be a student. In January of 2017 I made the decision to join Dojo Karate in Elk River. In November of 2018 I received my first-degree black belt which motivated me to become an instructor. I am thankful that I get to watch the students progress and that I am able to see the smiles on their faces when they accomplished something new.
