Ryusei Karate-Do Canada is proud to announce that
Ted Jungblut-Sensei has agreed to become a special
technical advisor to our group. Jungblut-Sensei is
one of the best karate fighters and technicians that
Canada has ever produced.
He is currently a rokudan (6th degree black belt)
in the Tsuruoka Karate Federation and also holds yondan
(4th degree black belt) ranking in Chito-Ryu karate.
During his competitive career (1969 to ’78),
he was the most dominant fighter around, winning the
national championships three times (during its first
three years) and representing the country in a number
of world and international championships. And though
in his 60s today, he remains a ferocious fighter.
Jungblut-Sensei’s other achievements include
being the national team coach (1985 to ’91),
inducted into the National Karate Association (NKA)
Hall of Fame (1990), president of the Karate Ontario
(1985–’87) and first vice-president of
the NKA (1986–’88). He currently teaches
in Huntsville, Ontario.
Besides providing advice to our association as far
as teaching materials and curriculum, Jungblut-Sensei
will open his dojo to visits from our members. We also
intend to work with Jennings School of Karate in Bradford
to hold a couple of clinics through the year.
Not only can Ryusei members learn a lot about kumite
technique from Jungblut-Sensei, he has smooth, flowing
and powerful basics and combinations that will give
us a better understanding of how to make our technique
