Sensei Stephens has been serving the adaptive community by means of karate since 2015. He has enriched the lives of many abilities and adaptations. This program is designed to meet the needs of each student in their own unique way. Every adaptive student will have a personal karate plan developed to create a strong mind, body, and spirit. Sensei Stephens has created plans and implemented them for students with autism, FAS, Down syndrome, OCD, and ADHD. He has also created plans for a wide range of mobility adaptations for students in wheelchairs, or with limb loss. He believes karate is how we treat others, and ultimately how we treat ourselves.
