“We would be proud to be part of your Team!”


Of all the attributes I would wish my children, one rises well above the rest, the development of a strong character. Discipline ranks high, compassion as well, patience, dependability and drive all are very important. In my experience each of these are attributes of an individual possessing a good or strong character. I have witnessed the significant contribution the martial arts have made with regard to the physical and emotional development of my two sons. They have been exceptionally fortunate to have been associated with Bobby Lawrence Karate and Mr. Ken Ruano. A man more often than not resembles those he associates with and this applies to an even greater degree in youth. Both of my sons began their training at an early age with Mister Ruano and they have excelled in multiple areas of their lives ever since. Now approaching the high school graduation I can reflect as to the countless times over the years I have heard their teaches say, “I wish there were more young men who demonstrated the respect for others your boys do. I don’t know what you and your wife have done, but you’ve certainly done something right.”

I have watched my boys excel in baseball, football and track among their many athletic endeavors. I have observed their popularity and abundance of healthy relationships. Without exaggeration I know what has contributed to their success and I am insistent that the martial arts and the guidance of quality people like Ken Ruano have played a significant part in the development of the character of these two fine young men.

Thank you Ken, it’s friends like you that make all the difference.

Word of the Week

August 12th, 2014


This week’s word of the week is on the value of persistence.

This saying is from Emerson or Thoreau who observed, “that which you persist in doing becomes easy, not that the nature of the task changes, but your ability to perform it increases.”
Let us this week remind ourselves that becoming a black belt is easy, as are accomplishing most goals, if we are persistent.

We can be persistent in Karate by practicing our Karate and coming to class consistently. In school we can be persistent by keeping up with our class work and home work. At home we can be persistent about saying “yes sir” and “yes ma am,” to Mom and Dad at home and we can complete our chores on time without be told.
