Gordon Franks and Pat Worley are more than black belts. They’re ninth-degree black belts who share their chosen martial art with youngsters and adults alike through USA Karate, the school they cofounded. The school – which opened in 1973 and has been operating for more than 40 years – was featured on the local CBS station and teaches self-defense techniques that help students graduate to higher-level belts and translate into increased agility, coordination, and self-confidence. The classes—which can be aimed at juniors aged 5–11 or adults aged 12 or older—are divided by belt color, ranging from beginners’ white-belt classes to black-belt sessions for experts.
