Craig Walters, yodan(4th degree black belt), began practicing karate in 1978 at Boise State University. Craig has lived in Idaho, California and Nevada (where Mr. Ohshima gave him permission to start a club in the late 80s). When he returned to the “Treasury Valley” in the early 1990s, Craig re-established his training with Mountain View and Boise State dojos. Most recently (2015), Craig was promoted to yodan in the presence of Mr. Ohshima, John Teramoto, and other top SKA seniors at the Shotokan Ohshima Dojo in Santa Barbara, California.
Craig has always had an interest in learning and instructing karate and self-defense. With a background in law enforcement he received P.O.S.T Academy instructor certification for arrest techniques and self-defense tactics. In 2006, he accepted an instructing position with Boise State University teaching karate and self-defense classes.
