"I have trained at Yushikai, alongside my two sons, for nearly 5 years. There aren't many sports where you can learn and grow with your children while building a common passion.    Yushikai teaches respect, confidence, discipline, and a strong work ethic. It's also a great laugh and keeps us fit. Sensei Dave and the other instructors are at the top of their game, and we are fortunate to be training under the best!    I love that Yushikai is traditional, so when you earn your next belt here, you know you have truly earned it. The opportunities to participate in national and international competitions and training courses are fantastic, and it makes you feel like you are part of something bigger.    We wouldn't train anywhere else!"   - Suzanne Maddock
