An Anchor in the storm
I began teaching after school kids karate programs in the Lakes Region of Maine, in 1999. In 2004, My husband Eric, daughter Jordan, son Nicholas and I became the owners of Bushido Karate Dojo.
Owning your own business is a lot like being a black belt. Perseverance is a skill, developed over time and it's the hard times that teach it the best.
I once felt trapped, like the giant in Gulliver's Travels; held down by many small ropes. However, I realized that these tethers were the connections I have with my students. Not trapping me, but connecting me to the commitments we'd made to each other.
A student is the anchor to the teacher.
This crisis will end. That is the nature of things. Much will change.
My hope is that my family and I may be an anchor for you and your family. Keeping you safe in the storm. Connected to each other and holding on tight.
Stronger. Safer. Smarter. Together.
