Mr. Tom Awad, in remembrance

It is with great sadness that we share news of the passing a stong man of Karate. Mr Tom Awad passed away after a long battle with illness. A loving husband, father and brother, he is remembered and missed by all who knew him.

Mr. Awad began studying karate as a young man, joining his brothers in every adventure the art took them. Tom Awad is well known to the karate world as a fierce competitor, a man of remarkable strength and power. His “Kia” shook walls. At the Kosho School he would spar with anyone, as he was willing to demonstrate his excellent technique.  He was a patient, kind teacher to all students he encountered. Thanks you for all you shared with us, Mr. Awad. You shall never be forgotten. karate-251
