Did you know when Mr. Nimrod Astel of Israel joined the GKK about eight years ago he had no dojo and no students? He now has a dojo he built and about one hundred students including ten dan rank members. He has sponsored visits by Yamakura Shihan to Israel two times, and traveled to the USA two times including attending our 50th Anniversary event. He has added yoga and combat fitness to his curriculum recently. His hard work, dedication, enthusiasm, concern for his students, great personality, and family support have resulted in a wonderful success story with no end in sight. We are fortunate to have him.
