New Interview Guest Revealed (#2): James Coffman

I’m excited to announce James Coffman Sensei as a participant in “Tales From the Western Generation.” Coffman Sensei is known as one of the most active and senior members of the Matsumura Seito community, carrying on the traditions of Soken Hohan and Kise Fusei.

A veteran of the United States Air Force, Coffman Sensei had the honor of training directly with Soken Hohan Sensei as his first American student. Coffman Sensei also met Kise Fusei in a unique way, leading to a series of “fortunate events” that culminated into a very noteworthy martial arts career.
