Student Spotlight No. 38

Who is in the spotlight this week?

The Bushido School of Karate is so appreciative of the students and families that are a part of our Bushido Karate family. We’ve had the pleasure of teaching for over 2 decades and in that time have been privileged to teach thousands of students. Everyone started at the beginning with no shortcuts, and we are so proud of their accomplishments.  Our weekly Student Spotlight features randomly chosen students on their own journey at The Bushido School of Karate.

This week’s spotlight is on Nereo!

Nereo is 28 years old, is a chef and recently achieved blue belt at The Bushido School of Karate. He began his training with us in January 2019.

Nereo got started because he was watching his step-daughter take classes. He tried it for one month – like all new students do – and has been training in our adult classes for 6-months. Our $99 monthly tuition for parents of students was also a great deciding factor. Nereo is getting a great work-out and sharing in a family activity with his step-daughter.

Training at Bushido Karate makes me stronger, and feel more confident.

This week’s spotlight is on Juliana!

Juliana is 24 years old, is in her last year of law school and is training for her 2nd degree black belt. She began her journey at Bushido Karate in January 2000. She is the youngest of three – all Bushido Karate students and all black belts. Juliana is a great asset to Bushido Karate and a power of example for both younger and older students. When she came back after a long absence we were thrilled to have her return – like coming home again!

I received my black belt 12 years ago and shortly thereafter stopped training. As a returning student, now 24 years old, I have realized one of the best aspects of training at Bushido is the constant self-improvement. I believe there are always ways to better oneself, whether it be academically, physically or emotionally. Today I box, I am training for my my second degree and I am studying for my final exams of law school. I have Bushido to thank for my accomplishments and am grateful for having been welcome back with open arms.

Bryan is 17 years old, is in 12th grade and is a 2nd degree black belt. He began his Bushido Karate training in March 2007. He is the youngest of three – all black belts. Bryan is a very talented martial artist and a mentor to younger students. He has truly earned the rank of Sempai (“older brother or sister”) through his commitment to helping fellow students and his kind and mature nature.

Check out Bryan as a white belt in 2007 on Instagram @thebushidoschoolofkarate !

Bushido Karate not only pushes me physically to places I never thought I could reach, but it is also a foundation for my character, my mental fortitude, and my will to put 110% into everything I do.

– Bryan

I chose The Bushido School of Karate because I felt they were making my son more self-confident and more devoted to accomplish his goals.

Bushido Karate makes me feel: good.

My favorite part of class is: I learn something new each day.

I like to learn: the forms.

– Franco

As a 6-year old boy Franco loves to kick and yell. Bushido Karate gives him an opportunity to get an hour of kicking & yelling while learning discipline & self-defense. He also gets a great work out and learns to set his mind to achieve and improve to a higher level. He also has lots of fun!

I like coming to Bushido because I learn confidence, and new skills like board breaking, self-defense and how to block and strike.

– Joanna

We chose Bushido because I’m a former student and only wanted Shihan (Mehrkar) to train my daughter.
