BY SENSEI JOHN
WHO IS SENSEI JOHN?
Father. Husband. Entrepreneur. Cook. CEO.
Inspired by the original television series Kung Fu and Captain Kirk's unmatched ability to fight aliens, Sensei John took his first steps into a dojo at a young age. Like many other young boys who grew up in the 70s, these television shows were an essential part of why he incessantly begged his parents to do karate. Unbeknownst to him at the time, these TV shows inspired a life-long passion that gave him invaluable interpersonal skills such as a powerful sense of confidence, discipline and an unmatched mental and physical focus. His lifelong journey made him an avid believer in the notion that we prepare to fight with the intention of never having to. Karate has been a way for him to prepare for everything life has thrown at him.
Outside the dojo, Sensei John spends his spare time on the farm wrangling chickens and planting vegetables, cultivating the key ingredients for many of his meals. An integral part of his way of living includes cooking his family delicious, nutritional and sustainably sourced meals which he has done since the birth of his daughter, over 23 years ago.
Sensei John does everything with passion, embodying the notion that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. He has poured his heart and soul into each one of his Dojos, and he welcomes you to experience the result for yourself.
