Kyoshi Jason David Frank is an accomplished 6th degree black belt and an internationally recognized figure in the world of martial arts. His personal martial arts success story begins in 1978. At the age of 4, he began training at Red Dragon Karate under Shihan Louis D. Casamassa. This laid the foundation for his entire future. There, he learned the Codes of the Dragon, which he continues to pass down to his students today.
Kyoshi Frank earned his First Degree Black Belt at the age of 12. After receiving his Black Belt, he began instructing for Red Dragon. The training he continued to receive and the knowledge he gained from instructing others prepared him for the next step in his life. This step came at the age of 18 when he became owner of his own Red Dragon Karate, the same dojo he started training at 14 years earlier. Shortly after this, more good fortune would come his way.
At the age of 19, Kyoshi Frank was cast in one of the most popular children's television series to be broadcasted: "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers." During his 12-year run as "Tommy Oliver", he starred in 3 seasons of "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers", "Power Rangers Turbo", "Power Rangers Zeo", and most recently "Power Rangers Dino Thunder". Along with this came two feature films: "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" and "Power Rangers Turbo". Kyoshi Frank was the longest running ranger in the series and to this day maintains a fan base that stretches around the world.
During his time filming the "Power Rangers" television series and the two "Power Rangers" movies, Kyoshi Frank began to look at the different styles of Martial Arts. During his study of the styles he came to the conclusion that there was no single style that was the definitive Martial Art. In 1994 he created his own system called "Toso Kune Do". The literal translation means "Way of the Fighting Fist". There are aspects of many different martial arts incorporated into Toso Kune Do. From this time on, Kyoshi Frank began to open schools under the name of Toso Kune Do. In 1998, he was introduced to another successful Martial Artist who would become a lifelong friend: Kyoshi Rick Herbster. Shortly thereafter, RSKA Corp. was established.
Kyoshi Frank has trained with some of the top Martial Artists in the world. This list is long and prestigious, and includes names such as Shihan Louis D. Casamassa, Sensei Chris Casamassa, Kyoshi Rick Herbster, Kyoshi Steve LaVallee, Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, Stan Ward, and world-renowned Muay Thai trainer Grand Master Toddy. Under Grand Master Toddy, Kyoshi Frank has established his full contact Muay Thai career.
Kyoshi Frank has dedicated his life to the Martial Arts. Through the martial arts he has known the best things in his life and knows the impact that it can have on people's lives. The desire of his heart is not only to continue to learn and grow in the art that has given him so much, but to share this with the world around him, so that they too may realize what Martial Arts is all about and what it can do for them.
