“My two children ages 11 and 13 have been learning Karate with Lucas. They absolutely love it and I am very pleased with their development and dedication. They respect Lucas and he brings to their instruction much skill and responsibility with the teachings of Traditional Shorinji Ryu Karate Do.”


“I have found Lucas to be dependable, reliable, hard-working, patient, caring and courteous. He demonstrates excellent organization skills and a very comfortable environment for my son who is on the Autism spectrum. I have seen a lot of growth in my son’s abilities in a short time and it’s a wonderful thing to witness.”
