Miguel has been working as one of the primary instructors at the NOVA Okinawan Karate Dojo for two years and has recently been promoted to his second-degree. Those who have worked with Miguel have noticed that, although he is big in stature, he exudes a calm disposition and has been referred to as a "Gentle Giant." Because of his disposition, kids sense a genuine tenderness and gravitate to him.
