Introducing Saska Fair Oaks – Sensei Todd Richards

Sensei Todd Richards is a Saska and USA Karate certified 2nd Dan black belt in Shotokan Karate. Sensei Todd’s journey in Karate began in 2003 by studying in France with Sensei Ahmed Rhamaid – 5th Dan black belt in Shotokan Karate certified through the French Karate Federation (FFK).

After obtaining the rank of 1st Dan black belt through the FFK, Sensei Todd moved to California with his family in 2014 and began studying Karate under Sensei Adriaan Van Vuuren – 6th Dan black belt in Shotokan Karate and director of Saska USA. After obtaining the rank of 2nd Dan black belt in 2017, Sensei Todd began teaching Karate for Saska in Orangevale.

Sensei Todd believes that Karate teaches us powerful lessons in self-knowledge, discipline, respect, attitude, and achievement.
