Anything you’d like to say?: Karate at FSKAH has been one of the best things for Jojo. I have to admit I was very concerned with him showing interest in karate.  After all, karate to me equated confident, discipline and powerful.  My little shy timid guy preferred no attention and definitely no physical contact.  He has come a far way because of our Mililani FSKAH ohana.  He is no longer hiding behind us.  His confidence, focus, strength, coordination has improved dramatically. It still takes me by surprise when I hear him "kiai".
