Poughkeepsie Karate Studio Stresses the Importance of Role Models
Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.
This week’s guest is Chief Master Gerald Dunn, Owner and Founder of Karate 4 Excellence and 8th Degree Blackbelt. We talk about the leadership and character-building skills that martial arts offers its students, along with how Karate 4 Excellence can be a great outlet to strengthen the family dynamic. Most prevalently, we talk about what it means to be a role model.
We invite you to listen to a previously recorded conversation between Master Dunn and myself here on In Touch.
