Experiences of June's students:
Sensei June has changed my daughter's life. I know that
sounds dramatic, but it is the simple truth. Her ability to zero
in on an individual child's needs and then to offer uplifting
yet strong encouragement and instruction is a blessing to our
community and certainly our family! She is an extraordinary
person and teacher... and friend.

Sensei June has been our sonís karate teacher
and mentor for seven years, and he is a now a first-degree black
belt. Sensei June has not only nurtured our sonís love and
mastery of karate, but she has, through her teachings, helped
instill in him a caring and compassionate relationship to, not
only his fellow students but the larger world. Sensei June is
the best kind of teacher, one who knows how to mix hard work
with play. My son loved her summer camp where a morning of
karate was followed by fun in the pool or, if it was raining, a
karate movie and popcorn. We feel grateful that she is our sonís
teacher and friend.

When my daughter first started kempo karate
with Sensei June in 2006, we had no idea the range of benefits
it would provide. Ten years of discipline, focus, mental
toughness and persistence have all culminated in a special
relationship with a wonderful Sensei and a rank of Third Degree
Black Belt. The life skills and the development of personal
relationships with students, with Sensei June and other Senseis
are things that she will carry with her through the rest of her

Our son has been a student of
Sensei June for several years. June doesn't simply teach her
students karate, but rather teaches them how to learn. June
demands hard work from her students, but does so in a warm and
supportive environment. Perhaps most importantly, June teaches
students to believe in themselves, discouraging negative
attitudes, and reminding young people that success is found in
attitude as much as action.
