Jared Lee, an adult sixth kyu level green belt student/assistant instructor from Genbu-Kai Florida, recently traveled to Orlando to compete in the International Sport Karate Association (ISKA) U.S. Open tournament.
Lee captured first place in kata (forms) and second place in kumite (sparring). He thanks Sensei Keith Moore of Genbu-Kai Florida, and the late John Baranoski of the Florida Karate Academy for their great training afforded him during his tenure at both dojos.
Lee currently trains at Genbu-Kai Florida learning the Shito-Ryu Karate style, including Okinawan Kobudo (weapons) and Batto-Do (the Japanese art of drawing and cutting with the katana). He enjoys Genbu-Kai Florida’s curriculum and encourages anyone who wishes to learn from a lineage that directly involves the legendary Fumio Demura, to come and check out and/or try a class.
Genbu-Kai Karate is located in the Wellington Marketplace. For more information on classes, call (561) 804-1002 or visit www.floridagenbukai.com.
