In our organization, we believe that when you attain the rank of sandan – 3rd degree black belt (approx. 15 years study) – you are a Karate Sensei. All of the above listed instructors have attained Sensei-level karate abilities and rank. They all teach here at NEMAD. Their years in the martial arts range from 18 years to over 45 years.

In addition to the senior instructors listed above, there are also over 20 additional black belts that attend and teach at our regular classes.
