My name is Darryl Grant. I received my Master’s Degree in Kinesiology with a focus on applied physiology and neuromechanics from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have conducted research with individuals of various clinical populations, including diabetic, senior adult. and obese. My internship hours involved administering therapeutic rehabilitation to cancer patients and spinal trauma patients. I began training Shotokan karate with the Japanese Karate Association (JKA) over 20 years ago and continue to practice today.
The greatest reward has been teaching beginner and intermediate levels of both children and adults the skills I have learned in this martial art form. To counterbalance the power in the movements of karate. I found yoga to provide the recovery my body needed. As a whole, I see functional strength training, kickboxing, and stretch therapy as three pillars of exercise that support a longer. happier, and healthier life.
