“It is an honour and a privilege to be a Martial Arts Teacher. I teach with a balance of humour, play, intensity, and focus. My goal is to treat my students with as much respect as they treat me; to serve not only as a role model as a martial arts teacher, but as a compassionate and engaged human being. This is how I was taught and it is my mission in life to pass on what I have learned, not only in the martial arts world, but in the community as a whole.” Sensei Ozel Osman.
