Wolverine: Then & Now

On the left, Tejas “Wolverine” Maniar, in 1998, during his Black Belt coronation. On the right, Tejas today, in 2013, as a business executive.

Tejas “Wolverine” Maniar is the 57th Black Belt of the Karate Institute of America. Tejas is pictured here with Anna “Wildcat” Griffin as she congratulates him on his 1st Dan Black Belt achievement in 1998.

Now, in 2013, Wolverine is a successful business executive. Way to go, Tejas! We’re all extremely proud of you, your accomplishments, and for being a vital building block in our rich Kiado-Ryu legacy and history.
