Senpai Michael Ehlinger


I had an interest in martial arts since High School when I trained in Judo for a year at the local YMCA. I began my training in Japanese Shotokan Karate under Sensei Hanlon in 1993 who greatly encouraged me. Since that time I have been taught and encouraged by many great teachers who have learned under Sensei Nishiyama as well. In 1999 I began teaching and learning right along with the students in our Dojo. This Dojo is a wonderful place to train and I have found many wonderful friends here to train with.
