I started practicing Isshinryu karate in 1983 at the Sen Shin Dojo in
Newark, NJ, Maria was a black belt there and she encouraged me to
start studying.

I next trained with Giulio Cavallero, a student of Don Nagle starting in
1988. I eventually earned a black belt in Isshinryu and trained until he
retired. In 2002 started  at Bob Herten’s Okinawan Karate Institute in
Shorinryu, earning a black belt in 2007.

When we moved to Florida we searched for a dojo and finally found
Sensei Scott Smith and the Orlando Dojo of USA Goju, training with him
since 2009 and earning a black belt. ---Ray Golden
