AMA EAST OPENS February 5th!

It is time; it is time to open our hearts and minds. Time to open the doors that will allow a glimpse in to the old world of Karate-Do. It is indeed that time.

The past eight months have been trying to say at the least. Through all the bureaucracy, red tape and setbacks, persistents pays off and soon our doors will be opened. I would like to thank everyone who has made this possible! It is a great honor and privilege to call these wonderful people my friends.

I find myself humbled with all the huge efforts that went into the new Dojo. People’s time, their patience and their sacrifices. I am truly blessed by those around me.

Who says Mistakes are bad? They can bring good things to bear.

I am a simple martial arts instructor who has been kicked around a bit. When it comes to boards, I usually break them so the construction part was a bit out side of what I do but I learned. Needless to say I have whole bunch of pine breaking boards to practice with. City Hall knows me by my first name and I’m sure they are really really glad to see us open our doors.

I’m sure there will be more challenges. Just because you reach the top of a mountain doesn’t mean that your climb is over. You still have to get down! For now though, I think I will sit on top of the mountain and enjoy the view and look for the next mountain to climb.

Soke Stacy Huffman, Sensei
