Kyoshi Dave Kovar: Episode 29
On this episode, we have Kyoshi Dave Kovar, an exciting martial artist, and an incredible teacher. I met Kyoshi Kovar back in July at the Super Summer Seminars event, the same place I met Sensei Katie Murphy and a number of other amazing martial artists. I was fortunate enough to work with him during a self-defense seminar and I was blown away. His reputation is certainly deserved.
Kyoshi Kovar was kind enough to appear on the show and we had a great conversation. As with most of our guests, he absolutely loves the martial arts, but I might venture that his love is greater than most. Not content with being a great martial arts instructor, Kyoshi Kovar is now regarded as an excellent instructor of instructors – both of martial arts skills as well as martial arts business.
I was honored to speak with him and I hope you enjoy listening.
Kyoshi Kovar mentioned Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee‘s pushups… here’s a video. Keep in mind, he’s 80 when this was filmed.
Below is a great video that exemplifies Kyoshi Kovar’s spirit – some self-defense and a conversation with his father, a 90-year old martial arts practitioner himself.
