A Volunteer Deputy’s Words…


I became acquainted with the Hikari Ryuza dojo as a result of my volunteer work with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office. We were encouraged to take Dr. Crimi’s self-defense course designed for law enforcement officers. The program turned out to be much greater than learning some basic techniques in a few weeks; it has stretched into nearly 12 years. The lessons learned are greater than physical techniques. They include mental toughness, building self-respect and self-confidence, as well as developing respect for fellow human beings. I highly recommend participation in the activities at the dojo for the knowledge, integrity and honesty that is forthcoming from Dr. Crimi, Professor Geary, Sempai Floyd and all the assisting staff.
