Phillip

During my vacation in CT, I had the pleasure of attending one of my brother, Phillip's, Karate classes at his Dojo.

Phillip has been studying Karate as long as I've been a photographer, since the late '70's. He's a Black Belt and in this class he's teaching some of his students. In this shot, he's explaining a new Kata they'll be working on. His Dojo is not air-conditioned, and it was really hot; very hot for this time of year in CT.

I stayed for this class, then Phillip's advanced class which was taught by his long-time instructor, Tom. They were working on they're own Kata with the Bow (I'm not sure how it is spelled). They were getting ready for a demonstration for the next day.

The last time I photographed Phillip in one of his Karate classes or demonstrations was in the '80's.
