Golden Retirement

November 10th, 2017 – Master Nathan Thorn, 38, of Lake Elmo owns and operates The Edge Martial Arts in Stillwater, MN has just won his 4th World Champion Title coming only 1 month after winning the coveted Diamond Nationals Diamond Ring. Thorn is now a 4 Time World Champion having won 2 N.A.S.K.A. World Champion titles which are based off accumulating points for wins at World Events throughout the year. In 2014 Thorn won his first WKC World Title representing Team USA and winning in Dublin, Ireland. In 2015 Thorn again represented Team USA at the World Championships but injured his hip in his final semi-finals victory that caused him to have to bow out of Gold Medals. Now returning in 2017 Thorn was able to reclaim Gold for Team USA in what may be his final tournament performance. After almost 30 years of competition Thorn is ready to retire from competition and help coach the next generation of Team Edge competitors to their own World Champion titles. This retirement comes after back to back wins at the Diamond Nationals which one of North America’s most prestigious events followed by a Gold Medal finish at Worlds.

“Master Thorn has a energy level that greets every student, of every age level, with the challenge to discover ones strengths and weakness and create a harmony within each individual. Thorn is not only a superlative instructor of Martial Arts but an honored representative of his industry.”
“Master Thorn is an outstanding instructor and runs a superior martial arts studio. My oldest son transfered to The Edge 7 years ago and Master Thorn and his professional team brought out the very best in his martial arts skills and in personal skills, such as dicipline, perseverence and confidence. The results, enthusiasm and enjoyment were so contagious that my other son and I joined The Edge,too. Master Thorn makes karate fun and helps you to accomplish your goals no matter your skill level or age. Martial arts is more than fitness and self defense, it is about being the best that you can be. Learn from the best of the best and begin the journey.”
