This is the first year for the Order of Isshin-Ryu Martial Arts (OIMA) scholarship program! We are very excited to announce the following first recipient:
Zackary Treloar, yon-kyu, Karate Rocks dojo
Mr. Treloar is 10 years old and has been training for three years at the Karate Rocks dojo in Windsor, Ontario. He is extremely active in the dojo helping Sensei Panazzola with the younger students. Along with his excellent record with his schoolwork, Mr. Treloar recently made the school track team and competed at the All-City meet. He is very aware of giving back and helping others as he helps others his age with special needs and was chosen to help with their bowling field trip. He is an altar server for his local church and assists as well with the Sunday school classes. Not to rest on his service for others, Mr. Treloar started a business three years ago called Paper Flight. He and his friends make crafts to sell for a local charity – Fight Like Mason Foundation. Mason was Mr. Treloar’s good friend growing up who passed from cancer at the age of four.
We are proud to announce Zackary Treloar as an OIMA Scholarship recipient for attendance to the 2022 Isshinryu Hall of Fame Tournament in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Best of luck Mr. Treloar!
