I am an artist. A martial, musical, literary, and traditional one. I do it all. I would love to be heard and seen worldwide someday in the near future, and I'll do whatever it takes to get there! If you listen to my message and my vision, I'm sure you can see that I have a unique and progressive style! Help bring this to a bedarkened world so that their appendages may be removed and enlightnenment engulf them...
Jokatech also know as Joka The Technician, born Jason K. Addae. He was born in White Plains, Ny to an English mother and Ghanian Father. The Black Asian moniker is an omage to his Mongolian lineage. He grew up in Mount Vernon and the Bronx. As a kid, he was into everything from sports to writing to video games. He wrestled in High School and was on the weight team. Yet, he is also an avid poet and chess player. Music and art always have had a deep place in his life. He has been a participant in The National Poetry contest and has received editors choice awards, nominations, and third prize in January 2008. He studied jazz under renowned saxophonist - Steve Carrington. He also continued his musical studies at Berklee Music School under Prof. Ed Tomasi. Produced and performed 4 albums over 4 years starting in 2006 with album titled "Pariah". Following "Pariah", he released "A Social Butterfly's Acid Jazz Obsession","Stabbing Low Rushing High", and then "S.T.Y.L.E - So Tell Your Lover Envy. He completed a comic series in 2006 entitled "Gachu's Ninja Quest" (soon to be released online). He played 2 seasons of semi-pro football with The BNEFF league and NEFA league. He trained as a boxer for 2 years under welterweight Andre Tsurkan, and in Wing Tsun Kung Fu for 7 years as well as at City Wing Tsun in NYC.
