Jody Sheppard - American Kobudo Ryu Karate


    I began practicing martial arts in September of 1999.  I haven't been to class in a couple of years, basically since I started taking graduate classes in 2002, due to all my other responsibilities.  I practice on my own, however, and did achieve blue belt status before I had to cease attending classes.  I started when my best friend Melissa asked me to go with her.  We had a great time going to classes and having our "mommy-breaks"  every week.
