Hello fellow Karatea!

I've been studying Isshin-Ryu on-and-off since I was a little guy - started in 1998. I've been a member of 3 clubs in total over the years, all with similar lineage. The on-and-off has been a struggle with myself but I've never stopped kata in my own time. I digress - I am two feet back in and training for my Ni-dan (finally!).

Isshin-ryu dojo seem to be few and far in between, at least in the valley, so I'd love to connect with others out there, learn their lineage and chat casually with other Karateka.

Have a great day, everyone.
Kampai!

Nice to see someone else in the Fraser Valley! I'm in Abbotsford. I'm presently training for my Shodan (can't believe I'm saying that!) in Shotokan.
