When I moved to the East Coast in August of 2001, I had already been training in other martial arts systems for about 16 years. As luck would have it, the first school I evaluated was Nackord Karate. After watching a couple of classes, I quickly realized that Mr. Nackord would have a lot to offer me as a teacher. I have now been training with him longer than with any of my prior instructors. By joining the school, I joined a family and over the years have built up many strong friendships. Joining the school was one of the best decisions Iíve made.
