Sports Center Saturday: The Karate Student

In December 2007, my son Nicholas, a brown belt, was preparing for his black belt in Isshin Ryu karate, which he subsequently received a few weeks later in January 2008. Here he is  practising towards that goal at our local dojo.

Nicholas began studying Isshin Ryu karate (a martial arts style that originated in Okinawa) in the summer of 2001. He continued taking lessons until he reached 2nd degree black belt level in January 2010.
