About Me

My early beginnings

“I was born and raised in the Karate World”…

I remember my brother and my father going to karate practice wearing their karate dogi.

First, it was curiosity and then I wanted to do what my brother was doing.

I remember doing my first punches in my parents' bedroom with my father. He said, “If you really want to start, I will take you to the dojo, but once you start you can not quit until you get your black belt.” I started Karate at the age of 5, and my father has always been a great sensei to me (Mark F. Waterhouse – 7th Dan JKA).
I am today 4th Dan with the Japan Karate Association (JKA) for Shotokan Karate.
I have 2 daughters who are also practicing Karate – the story continues…
