She began her training in Okinawa, Japan and now has over 30 years as a karate practitioner and competitor. Many of those years have been spent training and teaching youth and adults. Sensei Tammy teaches in a traditional style with honor, integrity, respect, self-discipline, and goal setting/achieving at the center of her teachings.
She is passionate about teaching karate in a relational way. Students should expect to receive knowledge and guidance to not only accomplish karate goals, but also life goals. Students will learn respect of others and themselves. Students will learn to set goal and work hard to achieve them. This class will provide a positive peer group in an atmosphere of humility and respect.
