David Dye Sensei

"If it were not for my father introducing me to the martial arts, I would not be where I am today. Each time that I set foot onto the Shuyokan mats, I am reminded of the fact that I had a very loving and caring father, who was able to see something in me, as his only son, that only he knew, would someday change the course of my future. For his wisdom, I am eternally thankful."

Shuyokan Sayings

"There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life - happiness, freedom, and peace of mind - are always attained by giving them to someone else. --- Peyton Conway March"
