Kyoshi Gerard Senese teaches that Karate has more than one meaning. The translation of Karate “Empty Hand” can refer to weaponless self-defense, but it also means an open hand offered to help others. Kyoshi Senese has been teaching since 1980 and has helped over 2 generations of Long Islanders improve their lives.
