Corey began teaching Karate in Alaska as a full-time profession and eventually closed and relocated to Tennessee. His school has been open since 1998 and since 2003 in Chattanooga. Corey's desire to teach those with disabilities to a world level of quality has brought him many success stories. His success on teaching those with special needs have been covered and been documented by world news organizations such as CNN News (2006) and several local news and media sources. In 2006, Sensei Corey Green taught the "first person in history with autism to qualify and compete in the U.S. Karate Nationals in the non-handicap division. In 2010, he taught the first girl with autism to qualify and compete in the U.S. Karate Nationals in the non-handicap division. In 2012, he taught the first blind female in history to qualify and compete in the U.S. Karate Nationals in the non-handicap division. The blind student went on to win the silver against non-handicap competitors with only 7 months training. Sensei Green is a direct student, school owner and branch director of Tennessee under 8th degree black belt Sensei Katsutaka Tanaka. Green has trained with Sensei Tanaka since 1998. Sensei Tanaka is one of the highest black belts in the world and is considered one of the best karate instructors alive today. Green also has trained with the likes of world famous martial artists such as; George Chung, Larry Lam, and Chris Casamassa in 1997-98. Although many might assume that Corey Green only teaches special needs students, he is quick to point out that he teaches anyone that is willing to learn. He believes that if people with special needs are able to achieve great accomplishments in karate and in life, then anyone can. Achieving great things in life starts with a dream and all you have to do is follow thru and never give up.
