Hi Everyone,
I am extremely new to this site, and the owner of a Karate and Dance Studio. I am a dance teacher, without much knowledge of karate. This past month my former karate instructor decided that his last year of college was putting to much stress on him and he was no longer able to balance teaching and school. Meanwhile, I have students who have contracted me for the school year to learn karate and I no longer have a teacher! I am in desperate need for an instructor. The students have been learning the style of Shorei Goju Ryu. But in the research I have done, it seems like Shotokan wouldn't be that hard of a change for the students. Any help you can give me, to find an instructor would be great!!! We're in Michigan. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have in order to point me in the right direction. Thanking all of you in advance!

Thanks Master Wright, happy to help-but we do need to know where in MI is the dance studio. I'll send a PM to the OP.

Our studio is in Owosso, Michigan.... Right in between Flint and Lansing. I wish dance studios were as friendly as all of you are! This is so refreshing to see people so willing to help someone in need. Thanking all of you in advance.

Have you asked your former instructor if he can recommend someone or put you in touch with someone?

Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions! As of right now we chose to go with the Shotokan style, and we found a very qualified Sensei. The style hasn't seemed to difficult for the students to switch over to, and the students really enjoy their new Sensei! Thanks again for all your help! I'm glad to have found this forum, as I'm sure in the future I will have plenty of questions about this art form. Remember we're all about the "dancing" and we're trying to incorporate karate into the programs we offer! And I want to make sure that the karate students get as many benefits from their classes as our dance students do! Being we're inexperience with the karate portion I'm sure we'll be needing plenty of advice from all of you.
