Nancy Lee Cerio (1942 - 2017)

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of
Soke Nancy Cerio.

I had the privilege of knowing Soke Cerio for the last 40 years. She was a true friend and worked tirelessly at helping me grow the IKCG and was seated on the Grand Council. I can’t think of anyone who loved Kenpo more than Nancy Cerio. It was truly her life and she lived it everyday.

As the first woman to achieve Black Belt in Kenpo in New England, she set the foundation for all women to follow. But her example was not just for women. Men and women alike would follow the standard that she set.

In addition to her tremendous martial arts skills and knowledge, and maybe more importantly; she was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Compassion and Love are what truly defined Soke Nancy Cerio.

Words can not express how much I will miss her.
Peace to the Rose of Kenpo.
