Sensei Erik Johnstone is a Martial Arts practitioner and instructor. He is the head instructor at the Shindokan Budo New England.
We don’t get to fulfill our obligations to transmit the art without students coming into the dojo, without students coming to training events. So our very existence in the role of teacher is entirely dependent on the existence of the role of the students.Sensei Erik Johnstone - Episode 570
