Sensei Walter Murphy was kind enough to let me borrow some of his patches from
his training days. Sensei Murphy was one of the best black belts to ever train at
Methuen Karate. At one time, he was nationally ranked in both kumite and kata. We
are very lucky that he paved the way for us as karate-ka! Osu!
