Canadian Martial Arts Hall of Fame?
After being on Bullshido.com for a little while, I soon felt the need to explore the origins of my curent style and of my instructors.
I have no doubt in the authenticity of my instructor and his instructors but I am interested in exploring the history none the less. I wont bother going into great detail here, but a few points in the history I was unable to verify and wondered if anyone here has information that may be of use.
The Canadian Martial Arts Hall of Fame, both my Sensei and his Sensei are inducted into it, but yet I can not find any record of a Canadian Martial Arts Hall of Fame on the internet. I would think a national organization would have a website...
The second point, my instructors Sensei is reported to have:
"fought the great former World Heavyweight Karate Champion, Harry Villeneuve, for the Canada versus United States title. In a 1992 Ottawa newspaper interview, Mr. Villeneuve stated that although he had defeated him, he was the toughest opponent he had ever fought. The bout was one of the longest in Canadian Karate history having gone into four overtime rounds. Mr. Villeneuve once defeated the highly acclaimed Chuck Norris, who later went on to movie and television fame. "
Thanks for any info.
Also note: I dont take Karate, my Sensei and his Sensei are both very accomplished in Karate and Traditional Jiu Jitsu.
