Levy County man earns highest scores at international tournament Photo Provided
Published July 21, 2013 ORLANDO -- Retired from the Florida Park Service, John Lohde works at the Super Cool Bike Shop in Gainesville; he’s a substitute teacher at Chiefland High School, and a Master Naturalist Instructor. He also runs True Path, his authentic Okinawan karate school. And when that’s not enough, Lohde travels to enter the U.S. Open International World Martial Arts Championships in Orlando. Lohde, owner and instructor of True Path Karate Rendokan, in Chiefland, was confident his 40 years of training wouldn’t hurt his chances during his division’s competition. One of the directors of the competition, who had seen Lohde’s previous performances at other competitions, sought him out to greet him and wish him well in the recent competition. Some of his students and their parents were seated ringside to cheer him on. The stage was set and the time had come to show what the oldest competitor of the tournament could do. The highest scores given for the day went to Lohde! He received 9.9 from each of the three judges as well as compliments for his superb kata. For now, the 5-foot tall trophy sits in the window of Lohde’s Chiefland dojo until he brings home the next one. For information call 352-221-0048 or drop by his classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
