“Isaac Pugh has been blind most of his life. He can see extremely bright lights, but nothing else. He easily became disoriented and struggled with physical balance and confidence.
In January, he decided to enroll in a karate class for the sight-impaired being offered for the first time at the Braille Institute in Rancho Mirage.
“I thought it would help with conditioning,” said Pugh, 64.
Instead, he said, the class has given him back his life.
“Karate has done more for me than I ever thought possible,” Pugh said.”
