KIA's Eldest Sage Black Belt


Dr. Milton Jacobson, aka “Super Zedha” just turned 90 years old on Christmas Day! Happy Birthday Dr. J.!

Milt Jacobson, the 3rd of currently 63 KIA Black Belts, began his Karate Institute of America journey at age 54. He earned his first dan Black Belt ranking at age 60! And he’s still going strong at age 90, thirty years later. Milt is quite an inspiration, and he certainly leads by example. So for any of you who think you’re too old to start your martial arts studies, think again!
