Jim Wax came back to Dayton Ohio ready    to teach karate.

So he looked for a venue…Then only Judo was known and some Japanese Karate Shotokan in major city had begun.

Jim took his art with him demonstrating in public and soon found “money-men” to back an enterprise.

The Karate Dojo was born and the new students became instructors simply by fighting and being tough. Robert Yarnall was asked to go to St Louis and did..Wax told Yarnall to wear a black belt

  2. Welcome to 2013 the Year of the Snake and critical financial concerns face everyone. We need jobs that are secure and allow us to make choices ahead and not worry. We need to have stability and confidence that the Banks don’t charge us fees and extra costs to support their corporate lifestyles.
    Enough is enough. Allow us our Middle Class opportunities. Give our Seniors a chance to live longer and not in hospitals, but on their own. Keep it simple.
    We are not able to keep up with the constant changing technologies
    Thank You

  3. The Weather is uncontrolable but we can take hold and prepare Use common sense When asked to comply Please follow the directions Stay off the snow filled Hiways so the cleanups can be accomplished.
    Stay home or check on your neighbors…get your kids off the compuyers and out side Give them a shovel and get them to clear the neighbor snow….THEY ARE LAZY because you allow them to say no.
