This slideshow is a tribute to the first official class of Junior Black Belt graduates of the Authentic Karate Training Center – Shiseikan. Special thanks to Sempai David Joseph for creating such a thoughtful and heartfelt presentation of the day. Arigato gozaimashita!
It was an AWESOME weekend of training with our special guest, Sensei Jesse Enkamp, a.k.a. the original Karate Nerd. Our gratitude goes out to Jesse for running such creative and thought-provoking seminars, as well as to all his friends and supports who came from near and far to train with him. It was an honor to meet and train alongside everyone in the spirit of karate-do. Special thanks again to Sempai Rick Karlberg for helping make the weekend with Jesse a reality here in Massachusetts. Arigato gozaimashita!

It was great to see our newly expanded dojo featured in an ad for Budo International Magazine. Zebra Mats, maker of the best martial arts training flooring chose our dojo to promote their state-of-the-art training surface – pretty cool! A special thank you to Evan Pantazi-sensei for all of his support.
Congratulations to the first five Junior Black Belts recipients of the Shiseikan. We are so very proud of all that you have become, and couldn’t have chosen better people to bestow with this special honor. You have brought tremendous pride to yourselves, your family, your teachers and your classmates. Thank you for your tireless dedication to the virtues of karate-do and to the standards of excellence, which you so sincerely embody.
