About Michael P.

I am a 3rd degree black belt with the Kobukan Karate Federation. I practice and teach Okinawan Matsumura Seito Shorin Ryu karate and kobudo weaponry. I have been involved in martial arts for over 15 years. My studies have included karate, ninjutsu, and Choy li fut kung fu. I am dedicated to empowering people, through martial arts training. Giving people the skills to help them protect themselves, while also passing on an art that has given so much to me, is my passion. My teaching style is is focused on the individual, while being very comprehensive. There is more to karate than learning the moves and techniques. There is an entire history and culture to explore.

Sensei Parker is so patient and good-natured with my two hyper boys (5 and 7). He humors their silly observations, gently redirects back to the subject, and reinforces their interest and enthusiasm in karate. Highly recommend!

I've been loving my lessons so far. Michael is so good at explaining the purpose and application of the various techniques and very patient with my questions. I've especially appreciated his willingness to work with me despite my back problems. I'm building strength, flexibility, and confidence with every lesson and I look forward to every one.
