Photo of the Week: Next Black Belt in Repose

Kneeling in a quiet moment of solitude is Soham “Falcon” Maniar, next in line for becoming the 64th Black Belt of the Karate Institute of America. Soham is an excellent student, is applying himself well, and is on target for a late summer black belt test. We are expecting to see an excellent performance as he continues the legacy of the Kiado-Ryu in grand fashion.

Photo of the Week: Warrior Executes an Offset Drop

Annette “Warrior” Dale executes an offset drop on Black Belt Mike “Shooter” Benedict. Noticeable is Warrior’s complete focus on her target, correct fist position, and overall form. The indomitable spirit of this feminine warrior is one of the distinguishable factors of her martial artistry. Warrior is not only an excellent role model for women and young ladies, she is no less a stellar example for men and young boys alike.
