MU Karate Club instructor Eric Parsons uses club member Josh Valdivieso in a grappling demonstration during the club's first meeting of the semester on Thursday at Memorial Union. "There are some karate clubs that are all about tournaments. We're not like that. For us, this is about self-defense, fitness and personal growth," Parsons said.
