Did the NBBF finally die? Did ex-MBBFer really think this is a good MABS thread?
Anyone out there following the NBBF? Anyone know what it is/was?
It stands/stood for the National Board Breaking Federation.
It was founded by Sensei Michael Erb of Tiger Schulmann's Karate, a 5th degree black belt.
It attempted to rekindle interest in the long practiced art of Tamashawari and it's primary clients were TSK schools. TSK required board breaking as a part of their black belt test, which was a convenient/captive market for the NBBF. Now, TSK has removed board breaking from their black belt test.
It has recently dissapeared off the face of the earth. The website is gone, the toll free number is disconnected, and allegedly Mike Erb has been booted from the TSK organization as well.
Anyone have any experience/insight as to what happened?
