Allen F. Majane, Shihan

From Shobukan's "Ancient History"

A 25-ish Shihan Majane working kata in his girlfriend's backyard, circa 1992. Chubbier, hairier and a bit less gray, if there was room to do so, I was practicing. The red belt rank in our former system was between green and brown 3. And yes, I know my pullback is wrong and my other arm is too straight. Hey, that's why I was practicing...


As of November 2018, the Wednesday Children's class in Hampden is cancelled. Hopefully this consolidation will create better attendance of the other 3 sessions. Please remember to continue telling other parents about our school, so that we can continue to grow. More workout partners means better workouts and more fun!
