Soke Dai Chris Foster

Chief Instructor

Soke has been a martial artist for 21 years. Over the last 16 years, he has been teaching as the Chief Instructor for Ichiban Karate School.  He also teaches Stage Combat in the Theatre Department at NKU.

As an admitted "Star Wars" enthusiast, he has collected over 150 memorabilia including more that 25 lightsabers.  Our Demo Team gets this honor of using these fun tools to entertain the public during performances.  He credits his son, Joshua, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for kindling his love of martial arts.
