Sensei Jeff Knisley

Shodan:1st degree black belt


Before joining Shobukai in 2007 Knisley studied open hand and grappling for several years.


Half way to his goal of attaining a black belt a car accident came close to permanently ending his training. His persistence in rehabilitating his injures allowed him to return to the dojo after a year and resume training without missing a beat.  


In 2012 he earned his Shodan ( 1st degree) black belt.
