Kyoshi Rob Eldredge
Kyoshi Rob Eldredge trained with Sensei Tod Bassett at the North Atlantic Shorin-Ryu Karate Association in Martha's Vineyard from 1984 until Sensei Bassett retired in 2000. Since then he has continued training and assisting Kyoshi Peter Cronig with teaching at NASKA. He was promoted to the rank of Shodan in 1990 and to his present rank of Shichi Dan in 2021. In the winter of 2004 he participated with Sensei Cronig and Sensei Penny Huff in ten weekly classes taught by Hanshi Grant on Martha’s Vineyard, one of the highest points in the history of our dojo. Rob thinks of the 19 kata of Matsubayshi-Ryu as an organically unified set which together form a sort of operating manual for the human body and mind.
