    Probably the 2 best forms competitors in Kosho Ryu are Tim Bowles and Bill Tolentino. Tim's a captain in the USMC and was in Okinawa, last I heard. Bill's in No. Cal.
    Rodney Alo is a Kajukenbo stylist, under Allen Abad. The late Ron Alo was his father.

    Thank you Sigung for the clarification. I knew Rodney Alo Sensei was Kaju since he would do what I consider a "hard-style" form, win, then go change into his Kung-Fu uniform and do a soft style form and win that also- :)

    I knew I was in trouble when I was coming up through the ranks and they were winning in BB divisions until one day I ended up in the same division...

    Kara-Ho has a few individuals in the mid-west that are outstanding in forms competitions but locally we don't get out to tournaments very often. (My excuse anyway)

    See ya-

    It was Ken Torres aka Mark Mitose's little brother from another mother lol.
    He's one of the best we have out there,though retired he often still enters
    He won over in Spain last year.Tim is back down south showing his badass skyline R34 which I hope to take a ride in soon and Bill is still teaching and having fun being a grandpa

    I would like to thank my big brother Mark for thinking so highly of me. I really do believe anyone who really understands what a form/Kata is for; can project the focus and intensity that others will notice. Practicing a Kata excuse my French; half ***, will only be cheating them out of the benefits of its whole intension. Put your heart into it. Understand all the intricate moves and techniques and what they are meant for.
    Marlon it was my honor meeting you, just working with you on techniques I can feel the strength and responsiveness that you posses, and thank you for your kind words.

    (Just to set the record straight. Mark really isn't my brother inside joke)
