Sensei M Ramathas Isshin Ryu.
Hello, forgive a CMA-ist his whimsy and for wandering into your world but I have a question.
Does anyone on this board know of Sensei M Ramathas 4th Dan Isshin Ryu? Has anyone trained with him and or able to verify his rank/legitimacy?
I ask because my job is as a premises manager and he has shown an interest in hiring space from us. I don't want anyone suspect here.
The website on his card goes nowhere... goshinisshinryu.com
His card also has has: Isshin-ryu World Karate Association-Okinawa-Japan which when I googled came up with this: http://www.isshinryukarate.com/
this org has over 40,000 members worldwide so I get the feeling membership does not confer legitimacy.
Unfortunately my bosses are less concerned by any 'dubious authenticity' than I am, as long as they get paid. Unless that is, I can show something is up.
If indeed anything is up.
Edit: He is listed as a 3rd Dan on the above org. So i guess that means he has certified rank from Sensei Kichiro Shimabuku? Which I guess shifts my questions to him.
Not asking for anything in depth, just a 'yeah their OK' from someone on here that knows their stuff..cheers.
