Bob "Grinder" Schreck - Gentleman Black Belt

Bob “Grinder” Shreck is the Sixth Black Belt of the Kiado-Ryu. He received his 1st Dan in 1988 and continued his studies for two more years, attaining a 2nd Dan designation.

Grinder is the epitome of undying effort and persistence. Because his work schedule would not allow him to attend group classes, Bob studied privately for eight years before attaining his Black Belt. His determination and ability to press on in the face of difficult life challenges make him a great inspiration for us all.

Bob Schreck is and has always been a true gentleman and exemplary human being. You can read more about him and all the Black Belts of the Kiado-Ryu.
