WENATCHEE — A veteran of two wars, Louis Barrier started taking martial arts classes in 1988 as a way to channel his aggression and manage post traumatic stress. It was a good endeavor then and it’s a good one now, said Barrier, who recently resumed the discipline he left behind more than 20 years ago.

Now, at age 83, he hopes to earn a black belt in the Korean karate discipline of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan, becoming one of the oldest people in the Northwest region to do so.
