It seems that karateka Yuka Kobayashi is now very over with SmackGirl. Just out of curiosity, which Karate organizaion is she with? Is she with the NPO IKO2/WKO or Ashihara? I read she did an interview from Ashihara Kaikan, but it seems she competed in the NPO World Cup.
I am pretty sure she trains at the Ashihara Tokyo hombu.
She is in thew new Okinawan Karate magazine special that was just released. She is in their doing some Ryukyu Kobudo. Most of the magazine is featuring Genki doing Okinawan karate.
