Sensei Scott Walls started taking karate lessons in 1985. After earning a 4th degree black belt in Okinawan Style (Uechi Ryu/Pang Gai Noon Ryu) Traditional Karate, he set out to begin his own school and martial arts system in 1998.
From 1998-2004, Walls operated his school out of a local gym that was located at 40th and Old Cheney. That gym was slated to close so the school moved to the current location and then expanded at that location in 2006. Throughout the 20+ years of business, the school has transformed and grown incredibly and plans for future expansion are underway.
Walls is a nationally certified mental health counselor and is licensed in the State of Nebraska as an independent mental health practitioner. Walls has certifications in trauma and is a specialist in child and adolescent behavioral and mental health issues. Walls has provided over 3,000 hours of seminars in over 350 cities throughout the United States and has published two books regarding children and teens and mental health.
Walls has spent two decades consulting with and providing services in public and private schools including 15 years with Lincoln Public Schools. Walls has also worked with refugees and immigrants who have survived torture and trauma as well as worked on federal grants providing mental health services to needed populations.
This experience comes to Lincoln Karate Clinic in the form of specialized programs for children, youth and teens that encompasses physical and emotional learning for the student’s benefit.
Sensei Scott Walls welcomes you to the Lincoln Karate Clinic and hopes you will enjoy the experience and of course, earning a black belt in Taishin Karate!
