    Instructor Biography: Randy Veinotte

    Randy Veinotte Karate June 2013 Web Size

    Randy Veinotte 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.
    Randy is very open to practicing with other styles and has attended numerous seminars in Europe and the U.S.
