My son joined the dojo two years ago. I was happy he had some physical activity several times a week. After about six months, Shihan Jorge Decenaencouraged him to compete. His first tournament he won bronze. His next four tournaments he won gold (Kata &Kumite). Shihan saw something in my son and nurtured it. My son now is working hard to train for the Nationals. Shihan has competed at the highest level of Karate and passes on his knowledge and experience to his students. I know my son will realize his full potential at USKDA.
