HAMPTON, VA, February, 12, 2012 - Brian K. Hobson, Richicho (North American Director) of the Okinawan Shorin-ryu Kiyobukan Kyokai announced today that Sensei Heidi Inman and The Dojo of Three Rings has joined the Kiyobukan.  Sensei Inman's school is located in Alta Visa, Virginia and offers classes for all age students.  Inman presently holds the rank of Sandan (3rd Degree Black Belt) in traditional Shorin-ryu karate.

"We are proud to welcome Sensei Inman to our association," said Hobson.  "She will bring a new perspective and a strong spirit to our association.  I know that we will all work to make here feel welcome"

The Kiyobukan was founded in 2008, by Hanshi (9th Dan) Nakaza, Seiei to preserve and promote the legacy of traditional Okinawan Shorin-ryu Karate-Do and Ryukyu Kobudo.  The name, Kiyobukan, translates to the "House of the Pure Warrior."  It is Hanshi Nakaza's wish that every member of the organization endeavor to manifest that meaning the all of life and uphold the rich legacy that has grown from the original Shuri-Te.
