Koi TV® is proud to present a new weekly video episode "Lets talk Koi" by Mamoru Kodama. Each week Mamoru San will pick a koi from Kodama Koi Farm and talk about its quality. I hope we all can learn from this.
Mamoru Kodama is one of the Koi superstars in the Koi hobby. There is a lot of things to talk about him. Eventhough, I am not able to talk about everything he had done to Koi Hobby, but here is some. He is the founding chairman of Miyoshiike (Japan) & Kodama Koi Farm (USA). He is a reputable Koi dealer, Koi expert and a well-known author of many Koi books like Kokugyo I, Kokugyo II and Koishi. He is also a contributor to KOI USA magazine. Over the past 45 years, Mamoru San has estibalished an excellent relationship with the Koi breeders, Koi dealers and Koi hobbyists in Japan, USA and many parts of the World. His eye for selecting koi is appreciated by many koi hobbyists around the world, especially in USA through Kodama Koi Farm. Together with his son, Taro Kodama, he established Kodama Koi Academy.
Kodama Koi Academy is the first of its kind in USA. In that class, he talks about the things he experienced and share the knowledge he had gained through his 45 years of career, as a koi expert. Personally, I had the opportunity to attend Kodama Koi Academy class when they came to Portland, Oregon. I learned a lot from Part I and Part II and enjoyed the class very much. I recommend his class to anyone who is interested in knowing more than just what is Nishikigoi and what are the Koi varieties.
Koi TV® is always working hard with many koi experts around the world to bring new and interesting additions to Koi TV®. Stay tuned to Koi TV® for more of Lets talk Koi episodes.
