Koubushi Bill Gossett began training in martial arts and wrestling at the age of nine, in 1967. He was a private student of Taika Oyata and lived 15 minutes away from Grandmaster Oyata's house and trained with him frequently for thirty years. Because of this close working relationship, Koubushi Gossett was able to learn more of Taika Oyata's art than anybody else. He is an accomplished wrestler & wrestling coach, and he has traveled extensively around the world, teaching kobudo and karate seminars, sharing Taika Oyata's secret family martial art with martial practitioners around the world.
