Assistant Instructor Rodney Nash is a green belt in American Kenpo Karate under Sifu Jim Dryburgh and assists with classes at PowerKenpo martial arts, self-defense and karate school.
Rodney Nash's daughter inspired him to get back into Karate after a brief hiatus.
He began training in martial arts almost five years ago to get in shape, but two young children and a busy work schedule forced him to stop attending classes. One day his daughter came home from school and asked if she could take karate classes after school ... so Rodney signed both of them up the next day.
Rodney is a 1st Degree Black Belt, and will be testing soon for 2nd Degree Black. He teaches the c classes Tuesday and Thursday, and assists throughout the week with many other classes.
"I really love seeing the light go on in someone's eyes during class. There is a moment when everything starts coming together for the student ... usually around blue or green belt ... and they begin to instinctively put different forms and techniques together into a more instinctual flow."
