Welcome to Grandmaster S. George Pesare's Kaito Gakko

Senior Grandmaster Simeone George Pesare
Founder of Kenpo/Kempo in New England

Dear IKCG Members and Kenpo/Kempo Practitioners,

With deep regret and sadness, we announce the passing of Senior Grandmaster S. George Pesare on October 14, 2012. We honor his life and memory as a Martial Arts Pioneer and the founder of Kenpo/Kempo Karate in New England. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him and shared in his art.

It is during times of grief, such as this that our strength must shine through. We do this by honoring the history and lineage Senior Grandmaster Pesare passed on to us through the establishment of the IKCG. We are his heritage and each other’s. It is our duty and privilege that we carry on. 

Grandmaster Steve Nugent
