One of the top 5 (in his weight division) power lifters (he bench presses 425 pounds) in Nevada will only come to Mary Ann McNeill for treatment of sore muscles, joints and connective tissue. It's not that she is so strong, but she uses pure technique to relieve Martin Azzam of his pain and allows him to continue to train and compete.
Correct technique, applied correctly, on a solid base of fundamentals, will greatly increase your chances of success in competition or on the street. Whether it be Karate, Weapons or Jujitsu a Goju-Shorei instructor will always stress doing it right.

Two newly promoted Yellow Belts in Goju-Shorei Karate.
Cesar Schinzing (left) was a Black Belt in Hwa Rang Do (2nd Black in Goju-Shorei Weapons) and John Mayes (middle) was a Black Belt in Goju Ryu and a Brown Belt in Shito Ryu, and they've started learning Goju-Shorei Karate from the beginning.
Starting at white belt in a different style/system is not easy. It requires that the student put aside ego, and preconceived martial arts ideas, learn different phraseology and retrain muscle memory. But these two are doing just that.
Congratulations to my newest students.
