Teet Ilves

Started practicing in 1980 under the guidance of Peeter Saar and Olavi Kivirand. Forced to give up four years later due to service in Soviet army and prohibition of karate in the USSR. Teet took up karate again in 1987 in the soon to be founded Estonian Shotokan Association. There he was awarded a black belt and in 1998 a second dan according to the Japan Karate Association graduation system. After 17 years of Shotokan and championship karate he joined the KDS organization lead by sensei Mitsusuke Harada and founded the Estonian Karate-Do Shotokai (EKDS) Tallinn club where he continues to practice and teach. Teet was awarded KDS 5th dan in June 2013.
