Sensei Green Trains Third Student to Make Karate History

Two weeks ago, Katie Whipple won the Silver Medal in the non-handicap division of beginner women’s kate at the Karate National Championships.  Whipple is a 33 year old woman from Dunlap, Tennessee who is legally blind.    Sensei Corey Green began teaching Whipple just 7 months ago.  She is not the first person with special needs to train with Green, nor is she the first of his students to make karate history.   But, she is the first blind person to qualify and then win 2nd place in traditional karate at the national level.   For more about the work of Sensei Green, click here.
