As an Instructor in the Tompkins Karate Association (TKA), I teach Tang Soo Do karate and two levels of jujitsu to children (6 to 12 years) and adults (13 years and older … sometimes much older!) on most Thursdays at Dufief Elementary School, beginning at 6:00 PM.

To learn more about TKA, visit the TKA website. We have so many opportunities to learn, maintain, and improve your martial arts! Tournaments, tests, daytime clinics during school breaks, and an amazing karate Summer Camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains … check out the summer camp video!

I also have been a student in TKA since the late 1980s. I received my black belt from TKA in 1998.
