GM Toby Cooling

 

On February 12, 2022, Isshinryu karate and the martial arts world lost Grand Master Toby Cooling.  TIKK sends our thoughts and prayers to the Order of Isshinryu.  Our heart breaks for our OI brothers and sisters, as well as his wife Master Diane Ortenzio-Cooling. We share in their pain to have lost a teacher, a leader, and above all a family member.

 

Members of TIKK at all levels are blessed to have attended his seminars, absorbed his never-ending knowledge, and spent time with such a warm hearted personality and storyteller.  GM Cooling was Hanshi Kristensen’s mentor, friend, sensei, and family – we know his legacy will live on in the OI, TIKK, and all who benefitted from his teachings.
