Hanshi Tomas Roztocil, the Head Instructor of Sunrise Dojo, is an 8th Degree Black Belt in Karate and Kobudo, 6th Degree Black Belt in Aiki Jutsu and holds a rank of Senior Master in Iai Jutsu. Hanshi has been studying martial arts since 1970 and achieved his first degree Black Belt rank in April 1974, from Soke William R. Cavalier and Kyoto Durant. He is the senior student of Soke William R. Cavalier, 10th Dan, founder of  TATSU DO

Hanshi Roztocil (above) holds an 8th Degree in Karate and Kobudo, 6th Degree in Aiki Jutsu and the rank of a Senior Master in Iai Jutsu. 

He built the Sunrise Dojo in 1995-96 with the help of his wife Helena, several Tatsu Do black belts, students and Soke Cavalier. The dojo was designed specifically for martial arts. The main dojo hall is one of the largest in the area. There are separate changing room facilities for men and women. 

The dojo is situated near the center of Caledonia but it feels like it is in the middle of the woods. It is actually on the east side of 10 acres of woods.

Aside from martial arts, Hanshi Roztocil has enjoyed a successful career in business, including positions as a Vice President of Engineering at Eastman Kodak Co. and Senior Vice President of Research & Development at Heidelberg Digital, LLC. Without a doubt, the discipline of martial arts training has enabled his success as a professional. It could help you as well.

See Emily Milgate in Action !!

Kumitachi is a very fast two-person fighting exercise.

Click on the picture to watch the action.

Go to http://tatsudo.com/iai_jutsu.htm to see more action and all 15 Kumitachi sets, including the ones with broken bokkens...

Emily was only 15 years old in these movies, but you would never know it when you see her fight. The inside joke is that she broke two bokken (wooden swords) within a 2 minute interval while recording this clip. They were just another addition to her growing collection. There are 15 kumitachi sets, A and B side, which are different in all but the first two sets. She already knows both sides of all 15 sets. (You will need cable modem or some patience due to large file size). 

Emily has since been promoted

to 1st Degree Black Belt in Iai, Kyoshi Roztocil's first Iai student to reach Shodan in Tatsu Do Iai Jutsu. These are her latest "trophies"...
