Kosho School of Karate is proud to be a part of the first Jodo promotion test in the Midwest! There will also be an excellent seminar with some of the top instructors from all around the country! See the seminar page for more information.
On June 29th, Kosho Instructors and students Sensei David Hamann, Nate England, Joe Thompson, and Becky Kelley helped put on a seminar at Rob Frommer’s My Gym in Newport, KY.
The seminar was led by Sensei James Walker, head of the Bushido Academy of Karate & Kobudo in Aurora, CO.
Thanks to Rob. Great job to all the participants, and thanks to Rob and Sensei Walker for letting us join in!
Congratulations to all of the Kosho students that were promoted in Guelph, Ontario over the weekend! Tom Dougherty, Paul Tarvin, and Mark Tarvin were promoted to Sho Dan (black belt) in Jo-Do. Evan Jones and Travis Volz were promoted to Ikkyu (brown belt) in Jo-Do. Great work guys!
Congratulations to everyone on their recent promotions!!!
A lot of students from our “Kids & Family” class were in the review on April 15th. Akhmed Aushev made green belt, his daughter Selema was promoted to junior green, and his son Michael was promoted to junior yellow. Becky Kelly was promoted to yellow belt and her son Reggie made junior yellow. Daniel Mills made yellow belt and Aiden made junior yellow. Brothers, Edward & Jalen, were not able to make the main review but completed their exam a few days later on April 24th. Tom Daugherty and Ben Spector, who regularly attend the weapons, adult basic, and advanced classes were promoted to blue belt.
Great work everyone!!! Also, thanks to Mark Mills for the photos!
Our young students are doing very well in their karate practice. Their kumite or sparring is coming along and they’re looking good. Sparring is challenging and a very good workout, the kids are enjoying it and getting better every time. Check out our kids section of our gallery.
Sad news, on Friday we lost our good friend and long-distance dojo member Randy Alley. He was a great person and a great karate man. He will be missed by everyone that knew him.
The kids gets serious about getting their promotion!
Congrats to Reggie, Aden, Michael, Jalen, Donald, and Edward who all earned their stripes Monday night in Kids & Family class. They have all been working hard towards making junior yellow belt in April, and it shows!
Thanks to all the assistant instructors and parents who have been working with the kids!
