Shihan Theodore Tsanidis
Grade: 9th Dan (Hachidan)
In the late 1960’s, as a young man, Shihan Theodore Tsanidis was a very energetic and sports loving person. After many years of training in all types of sports, he decided to stick with Karate as it had everything the human body needed to stay fit and healthy. Shihan’s fate led him to join the I.K.O Goju Ryu Karate Group and after a few years of training he was fortunate enough to meet the Master of I.K.O Goju Ryu Karate, Sensei Gonnohyoue Yamamoto. The Master was very impressed with Shihan’s karate skills so much so that he allowed him to open his own Dojo’s.
“It has been rewarding for me to see so many children, teenagers and adults walk through the doors of my various dojo’s as it has allowed me to pass on the traditional Japanese techniques of Karate that I have learnt and to see them transform before me. I am looking forward to meeting and teaching many more students who have the desire to learn the fine art of I.K.O Goju Ryu Karate”.Thank you and God bless.
