Carolyn Hinckley, Rest in Peace

We are saddened to learn that Carolyn Hinckley died earlier this morning. Carolyn was a special part of the O.S.K.A., volunteering as a counselor at the Youth Leadership Super Camp and as an assistant instructor in various classes in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area. Carolyn studied Sanchin-Ryu with us for over ten years, earning her black belt several years ago. She began studying Sanchin-Ryu with Jake Biernacki, DM after a bout with cancer and had fought a long battle with the disease throughout the years that we’d known her. She will be remembered by all of us for her positive attitude, free-spirited nature, love for her family and the way she overcame so many obstacles.
