Like all other startups, 3T has also a story behind its existence.
Hailing from upstate New York, Penny Pitassi the "founder" has always been enthusiastic for martial arts in her early age, and therefore, started studying it in 1991. The honorable Japanese title ‘Kyoshi’ was given to her by Hanshi Terry Bryan, founder of Shorin Kempo Karate and the American Black Belt Association. This brave lady was also a part of the United States Air Force, and while serving as the active member of it in 1995, she was ready to give training in karate especially for kids and family.
She has competed in many tournaments and one such in the World Martial Arts Games for women which were held in Munich, Germany in 2005 where she bagged the World Title.
A man who has been an outstanding entrepreneur for than 20 years with detailed expertise in business consultancy, Renshi George Mink, is passionate martial arts trainer from the age of 15 years and has trained all across the globe in countries like Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, Israel, France and the United States. His true dedication towards martial arts urged him to team up with Penny Pitassi in 2009, where he could provide his karate skills and business development skills to helping people impact their lives.
