Dento-teki Kyokushinkai Karate Organization

About Me

I own and operate Zingg's Karate Center in Ranson, WV. I am also a high school special education teacher, specializing in teens with behavior and emotional disorders.

I teach a traditional Okinawan Shorin-ryu Karate called Tozan-ryu. I also teach Shorinji Toraken-ryu Kempo-Karate and Ju-jutsu.  I am actively working on progressing in Motobu-ha Shito-ryu.

I dabble in several other arts merely to please my interests and curiosity (but hold no rank in any of them), they include Motobu-ryu Kempo, Motobu-ryu Udun-de, Mugai-ryu Iaido, Hakkoryu Ju-jutsu, and Wing Chun.

I am especially fond of traditional Okinawan and Japanese Kobudo and welcome the opportunity to train with anyone who knows some cool stuff.

I belong to several traditional organizations that promote preservation of the Japanese and Okinawan traditional Budo arts.

The American Kempo-Karate Association

The International Kempo Federation

The Dai Nippon Butoku Kai

The International Seishinkai Karate Union

The Universal Martial Arts Association

Before I became a school teacher I worked as a professional bodyguard for an agency in the Washington, DC area.  I still occasionally do security contracting and bodyguard work.

I am a licensed professional MMA Judge and Referee in Virginia, and also am licensed to work in amatuer events as a  judge and referee as well. 

I am married to Barbara for 34...or is it 35 years....?  since 1975...or was it 76?

I have two grown boys, Jason 29 and Joshua 21.

If anyone is in my neck of the woods they have a standing invitation to come and train with us.  Be my guest.

Take care

Rob Zingg
