Native San Franciscan, married over 22 years, studied Gojukai martial arts at the San Francisco Gojukai dojo formerly located in the heart of the Castro District. Grew-up in the Haight-Ashbury District, then moved to the East Bay where I finished high school, and later graduated from Santa Clara University. My wife was born in Sasebo, Japan and spent her youth in San Diego and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where she graduated from San Francisco State University. She has spent her adult life in San Francisco and Oakland area since 1980. Indeed, between the two of us we can help you with your travels in and around Oakland and the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
