Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight
Sempai Larry Harvell, 2nd Dan
Mr. Larry Harvell achieved Senka Te Karate Warrior Elite Black Belt status on August 29, 2015, after three years of training. He is grateful for the support and encouragement of all involved in the journey to Black Belt.
Larry is a retired Deputy Chief for the State of Florida and a retired US Army Reservist. He earned Bachelor degrees in Business and Psychology at Florida State University (FSU) and was awarded the Certified Pubic Manager designation through the FSU Center for Professional Development.
Larry also holds Black Belts in the Japanese style of Gen Wa Kai and the Korean style of Taekwondo but considers Senka Te Karate to be the system that encompasses the essence of what every martial art should embrace and that is to understand what is needed for defense and survival in the current world while keeping the heart focused on the next.
As an active member of North Florida Baptist Church, Larry is involved in numerous ministries and considers the outreach of the church an opportunity to share the love of Christ with our community.
