A Fine Instructor

The other day, a worker visited my office to service some equipment. Because of the photos in the Hawaii Karate Museum, the conversation turned to Karate. The man had studied martial arts when he was younger and was interested in starting Karate.

I knew that one of the workers in his company was a Shorin-Ryu instructor and mentioned his name. The man was surprised. He said that he had heard that his co-worker studied Karate, but did not realize that he was an instructor.

I said that he probably did not hear about him because he was a fine instructor -- one not prone to speaking about himself or letting others know about his Karate skills.

Being known makes most Karate instructors uncomfortable.
