Jimi The Hippie was trained by Kato. Big Star Dave Daniels, Xander Graves (both retired now) Bobby Shields got his start with Kato. Like the above poster said, he has trained MANY, also "Dumb but Tough" Squig. He has a pretty good list of people trained and I can begin to think of them all. ALL IN ALL Kato is a very good teacher of the game.
