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.
