Kimo Sensei began his training in Okinawa Goju-Ryu at the age of six years old. In 1961, as an adult, he joined the United States Marine Corps and was stationed in Okinawa where he joined the Shodokan Dojo of Master Higa Seiko. Master Higa Seiko was one of Okinawa's most profound Masters of Goju-Ryu karate. During this same period, Kimo Sensei also began studying Kobudo under Master Matayoshi Shinpo.
During his extensive training Kimo Sensei also had the opportunity to train at Master Toguchi Seikichi's Shoreikan Dojo where he learned Master Toguchi's Gekiha and Kakuha training kata. These kata are special training tools for those training in Goju-Ryu karate and assist in the development of Bunkai for all kata. Kimo Sensei would especially like to offer his thanks to the following Sensei; Tamano Toshio, Shinoda Nobuharu, and Kinjo Bokuyashu of the Sho Rei Kan headquarters in Koza, Okinawa.
For more than fifty years Kimo Sensei lived, worked, and trained in such places as Hawaii, Taiwan, Okinawa, and Singapore. In addition to teaching traditional martial and healing arts, Sensei was instrumental in establishing dojo in Hokkaido, Japan, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, and through out North America..
