PALESTINE, Texas — Students from the Larned Family Israeli/Okinawan Kobra Kai Karate and Mixed Martial Arts U.S.A. Academy traveled to Palestine, Texas, to train at the Main Dojo (School) at a Summer Karate Camp July 20-22.
Nathan Chlumsky, Larned head instructor and Fourth Degree Black Belt, was appointed Kansas Regional Director for the Shorinryu Matsumura Seito Wakidokai Karate Federation by Steve Warren of Palestine, who serves as federation head and 9th Degree Black Belt.
“It is a great responsibility and also a great honor, as I am now over the entire state of Kansas,” Chlumsky said. “Whatever issues other people from Kansas may have, will now go through me first.  I am in charge of trying to recruit more schools into the Federation.  Knowing that Master Warren has that kind of faith in me means a lot.”
