Rick Sensei started training in 1970 at the West Wind Dojo in Florida. In 1976 he inherited the dojo and since then has remained its instructor. Originally a member of the USKA, Rick Sensei moved to Richard Kim’s group in 1989 and since that time has endeavored to train and learn from as many instructors as possible. He is also a long-time student of Matsugi Saotome, who is considered to be one of the best Aikido masters in the world today. After posting his first video on YouTube, five years ago, Rick Sensei has found himself being invited to a variety of countries to teach karate. He now travels the world delivering his unique take on Shotokan karate and building his own community which is called Sunday Morning Keiko.
