About Us | Empty Hand Combat Nampa

Master Cosmo Zimik

Master Cosmo began studying Burmese Thaing Kung Fu when he was 4 years old.  He initially learned from his oldest brother, Aring, who was a Thaing practitioner. Later, he studied under Grandmaster Shimreigam Serou.

A Brief History About Master Cosmo Zimik

Brief History of Cosmo’s Life: Born into a tribal war with India, trained as a black belt and street fighter from the age of nine, tortured and left for dead at the age of seventeen, Cosmo Zimik has an intimate, working knowledge of violence. During his long weeks of recovery, nursed to health by a total stranger deep in the jungle, the seed of the Empty Hand Revolution germinated in Cosmo’s mind. Years of fighting, multiple contracts on his life and another near-death experience forced Cosmo’s Empty Hand Revolution into full fruition. In a world hungry for power and drunk on violence, what does it mean to be a true warrior?
