  • Sensei Nick is a great instructor and amazing martial artist. I grew up training with him. He's very knowledgable and has always invited us to his events. As one of his former assistants (joe) his kids program is very solid. It's fun and a variety if activities that involve games through training through karate. I have used some his methods into our school. Sensei Nick is stern in his training methods but understands to stay current in today society for karate. Thank Sensei for showing some tips! Osu!
