The Karate Dad is my attempt at applying martial arts principles to parenting, as well as chronicling my son’s journey in the martial arts starting at a young age. I will share lessons learned, tips, tricks, and stories along the way. I hope other parents out there find it useful or at least entertaining!

Hi! I am Master Steve Elmore. I am 5th degree black belt in Tang Soo Do and run a studio full time in Seattle. I have a super cute young son named Anders who is chomping at the bit to start karate. Besides teaching karate, I enjoy writing about what I’ve learned over my 30+ years in martial arts to help people achieve their goals.
