About Us

The Shorin-Ryu Karate Academy Demo Team started in late July 2001. Originally there were four of us. Allie Boyd, Derek Gendron, Dan Gonzalez, and Kerri Doherty. Nick Katcher join a few days later.

Kerri left in late August for school reasons which left the four of us to be a team, which we have been ever since.
In late March 2002 we started a Jr. Demo Team to perform as an opening act for us and as a stepping stone to eventually join the Demo Team. The four members are Luke McDowell, Emily McDonaugh, John Vogel, and Danny O'Brian.

We have had our ups and downs while being a team. But we always came through. To date we have had eight demos.
