I have been in Karate for over 30 years and started training in 1975 while stationed with the U.S. Navy and member of the Naval Security Group on Okinawa. I was privileged to begin my Karate training and spend many hours working out directly under Grand Master Fusei Kise in the honbu dojo in Okinawa City and was lucky enough to meet, attend seminars and test under Grand Master Hohan Soken. I continue to travel to Okinawa and train with Grand Master Kise at least every year and attend camps throughout the US when he visits.
I attained my Godan (5th Dan) in Karate in 2003 and attained my Godan in Kobudo in 2006. All my Karate Kyu rank certificates were presented to me by Grand Master Hohan Soken and all my Black Belt Karate and Kobudo certificates have been presented to me by Grand Master Fusei Kise.
