About Sensei Janos

Paris Janos began training in Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu Karate in 1974 at the age of 17.  He reached 
shodan (first degree black belt) in 1977. In 1984 he was ranked third degree and  was invited to Okinawa where he  trained with the head of the style, Shoshin Nagamine. He also trained privately with Segi Nakamura, Takayoshi Nagamine, Yasuhiro Makishi and other senior black belts at the head dojo.  At this time he was invited to train at the private dojo of Katsuhiko Shinzato where Chokei Kishaba taught advanced methods and theories of karate.  He would practice there in the daytime and then at Nagamine dojo at night - a very grueling schedule.  Upon his return to the United States he opened his own dojo to teach Kishaba sensei's methods, the first to do so outside of Okinawa.
