Randy is the Founder and Technical Director for the Shotokai Karate Club. He started practicing Shotokai Karate in 1989 and opened the MSVU dojo in 1992. He has his Fourth Degree Black Belt and has been practicing martial arts for over 20 years. Randy is certified in Nerve Impact Control Tactics (NICT) and has added the use of pressure points to his karate practice. Distance and timing, coupled with NICT, wrist locks, and joint manipulations has transformed his martial art into a more modern version of a very traditional style.
