In addition to having a strong Shotokan base from her training with Sensei Tsutsui, Akemi has been fortunate to train with karate masters of different styles in California, Hawaii and Japan. Akemi competes regularly and has medaled in the Junior International Cup, USA Open, USANKF/USA Karate Nationals, and countless local and national events. She is currently a two-time USA Karate Senior Team pool member and trains full time in addition to working as an independent artist and small business owner of Live Deliciously. Her artwork is crafted in pen and ink and mixes themes from Japanese folklore and Anglo-European fairy tales.
Aside from karate and drawing, Akemi occasionally writes for local newsletters and magazines, and is a consultant for the Japanese Arts Network.
Akemi holds a Bachelor of Arts in Ethnic Studies from the University of Colorado Denver.
