Our Teaching Philosophy

“Spare no effort when you teach. You advance as your students advance. Do not be impatient when you teach. No one can learn everything well at one time. Perseverance is important in teaching, as are patience, kindness and the ability to put yourself in your students’ place.”
                                                                                                                                                                                              – Tohei Sensei
