Our Family Tree

Master George Kosty - Lineage


Master George studied under Al Rubin from tail end of 79 until his passing in April 1987 at which point he was a 4th degree black belt. He then trained with his good friend Dave Hopkins for a few years and a few degrees, as they grew up at Al Rubin's together. George then trained with 1st Generation Masters Raul & Xavier Ries for 3 years where he received his Masters Degree in 1997. George also trained in the late 90's at JHW Studio in El Monte under senior student  Master Jack Sera. When El Monte Closed, he then trained with 1st Generation Master Juan Meza, in addition to a few other 1st generation masters.

Master George knew JHW for eleven years until his passing in 1991 and learned things about the art directly from him and continues to pass on his philosophy and ideas about the Art of San Soo.
