Karate Dojo In St. Albans Provides Space To Grow!

Monday night I had the pleasure of interviewing Master Rucki, a black belt, and the owner of R Family Dojo in Saint Albans, Vermont.

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, kids aged 5 to 18 and adults of all ages come together for one reason: to better themselves. Its not only about self-defense, its about patience, respect, and camaraderie.

As Mr. Reilly, another black belt, tells us in the video below, this Sensei is not macho. As a result she can show even people of small stature how to disarm larger individuals.

The classes in Saint Albans start with a review period where everyone warms up by jumping rope or working on their Kata. Master Rucki is there to answer questions, or students can ask a fellow student with a higher belt for assistance. Then Master Rucki or a student leads the class in stretching exercises. After that the class varies from day to day, it could be sparing, a game, kata, etc. This keeps students on their toes.

Each student gets their own blog on the website to track progress and document successes. In other words, it is a visual diary of their time spent at the dojo.
