COLUMBIA CITY — It wasn’t the 80s movie, “The Karate Kid,” that inspired Dean Houser, of Columbia City, to start learning martial arts.

A simple encounter with a “nice guy” convinced Houser to sign his son up for classes and eventually, Houser himself was hooked.

He now teaches various forms of martial arts and wellness in his studio, Living Arts, in Columbia City.

In addition to teaching structured classes, Houser offers his expertise to the Whitley County Domestic Violence Task Force.
