Dr. Rupert Dyre

Rupert Dyre "MD"  began his training with Kaicho in 2007. Doc's strong point is the ability to think out of the box. He looks at techniques in a mechanical and anatomical aspect which most Karateka is unable to do. Having this ability allows him to know what works and what does not.
