Head Instructor

Shihan Mohamad Jahan-Vash is an Eighth Degree Black Belt in Lou Casamassa’s Red Dragon Karate. He started his martial arts training in his native country of Iran at the age of nine, but his real training didn’t start until he came to the United States.

At the age of 16, he began training in Red Dragon Karate under Shihan Louis D. Casamassa and was promoted to first degree in 1980.

Since 1985, Shihan JahanVash has been the owner of the Red Dragon Karate Studio in Diamond Bar. He is the promoter of COMPETE World Martial Arts Championship, a NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association) 6 “A” rated tournament, the highest rating in that organization. It is one of the largest martial arts tournaments in the United States.

 As a color belt Shihan Jahan-Vash competed in all categories: Weapon, Kata, Sparring, Showmanship, Samurai and Breaking. In the Red Dragon Organization, he is one of the few competitors to have won five Grand Reserve Champion awards. In 1982, his competition career ended due to a major knee injury. His passion and energy for competition has now transferred to his students.      

Shihan Jahan-Vash and his students travel all over the country to compete and, in the past 17 years, have participated in 35 - 46 competitions each year. His participation in martial arts competitions has earned him the positions as Board of Director of NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association), US Regional Director of A.K.K.F., the second highest position, and President of PAC (Promoters Association of California).

He directs and coordinates over 75% of the major martial arts events in the US. He is responsible for many additional categories that are offered in tournaments today, as well as unifying sport karate rules between the major organizations.

In 1994 and 2002, he was the director of the California Police Olympics for martial arts. This competition is for all law enforcement and fire department personnel.

He takes great pride in his students’ achievements and considers himself fortunate to be able to accomplish all of this with the support of his beautiful wife Amanda and three amazing children, Ava, Shahin and Alec.         

Shihan Jahan-Vash considers his instructor, Shihan Louis D. Casamassa, the most important influence in his career and martial arts endeavors. Shihan Mike Jablonski and Shihan Tom Cosgrove have also been influential in his martial arts career. Shihan Jahan-Vash is thankful for the opportunities that have been given to him and he believes that through hard work, perseverance and focusing on your goals, any person can achieve their dreams.
