Sensei Aman Yousufy was born in Afghanistan. He began his Martial Arts training in Kung-Fu at the age of 17. Later, after immigrating to Canada, he trained in Tae-Kwon-Do for a year before deciding to study traditional Goju-Ryu Karate under Sensei Wayne Aresenault. Having achieved the rank of San Dan (3rd degree) he dedicated his life to teaching by opening his own dojo and joining the very small group of people who can be called Sensei.

Sensei's note:

knowing and doing are as different as night and day. The gap between knowing and doing is where great men and women are made or lost. Most of us know what we have to do to achieve our dreams, but we have a hundred and one reasons not to act on our knowledge. The reality is that with all of the energy we use to think up and justify those excuses we could be halfway to achieving our goal. If only we had the motivation to get started on the “doing”. The place we have to start practicing motivational skills is with ourselves. Once we can motivate ourselves, we can motivate anyone.Set a plan, map out what to accomplish, but break your goals into manageable pieces so they won’t break you. Have the courage to ask, not react to situations. When logic tells you things are too crazy in life don’t give up on your life, give up on logic. There is no end to the negative, ungrateful people in this world. Be careful not to get hung up on other people’s hang ups. The wise man seeks the truth; fools feed on trash. Eyesight is always better than hearsay. Deal with the facts, not the fiction in any given circumstance. Always seek wisdom, not knowledge and remember a bold and courageous heart is the signpost of a fearless life.
