Way to Go, Jean!

Jean DeCosta receives 8-dan

I’m happy to post this good news about one of my long-time teachers, Jean DeCosta.  She recently received her eighth-dan during a trip to Okinawa.  She is currently the highest ranking woman in the world in Shohei-Ryu.  Congratulations, Jean!  Thanks for all of the wonderful lessons you have shared with your students throughout the years!

About moaimartialarts

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
