KARATEbyJesse in Massachusetts

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!
