OKP #32 – Jason Perry, Kensankai Shorin-Ryu
Season 1, Ep. 32
I am pleased to present my video interview with Jason Perry, Shorinryu Kensankai. Jason Perry is the son of Doug Perry, Hanshi 10th Dan, and was practically born in the dojo. He literally cannot remember his first days because they go beyond his earliest memories of growing up on Marine Corps Bases along the East Coast, often being the only child in a dojo full of Marines, Soldiers and Sailors. He has nearly four full decades of martial arts training, he is a pure gentleman, and a Sensei in the truest sense.https://shorinryukensankai.org
