My first black belt in Canada
Nobuo San started karate in 1992 in Nagoya and then Gifu dojo.
He became my student in 2007, and before opening our dojo we trained everywhere: park, gym, beach, living room.
He is not the most physically gifted person, however his dedication overcame all the obstacles.
In October 2013, he passed the test in Osaka , becoming my first black belt in Canada.
Well done Nobuo San, a new journey starts now!
