Anyone hear of Al Martin?
Has anyone heard of a martial artist from south Florida named Al Martin? I have been cruising the web and looking for some Shorin Ryu in Florida and this guy reeks of BS.
This dude has like 50 websites that all link to each other with no real info on them. He is claiming to be Matsumura Shorin Ryu, but yet doesn't practice anything that Master Kise teaches. And the funniest thing to me is his website(s) are all copyrighted before the internet really came online much.
I think his list of black belts is total BS, as well as what he is trying to sell.
I have never seen anyone associated with so many dragon of the month clubs in all my life. Come on now, Gold Dragon Black Belt Club, Silver Dragon Black Belt Club... this screams BS to me.
Has anyone ever see this guy in action or any of his students?
AL Martin Shorin Ryu Florida
I have trained with Al Martin from south Florida, he is the kind of guy who will hand you your teeth. His lineage is from his Father Al Martin Sr. through Bull Usi Sakugawa of Hawaii (Bento Farmers from Okinawa) Decendant of Kanga Teryu (Tode Sakugawa) it is a real mean Family system from Okinawa. In the system you will find the oldest of Okinawa's kata like the Channan, Kusanku, Chinto and the Tsings. I studied once with Kise for three years, his Te is Bull shxt compared with the Sakugawa system. The video of the Paul guy on U-tube was a fake that guy never trained with Al Martin. Al Martin's Uchi Deshi are Matt Sommers and Danny Jones both live in Georgia, U.S.A. Instead of posting here like a coward without honor, you should drive down to Florida and find out for yourself. Why would you ask other people make decisions for you? Are you that shallow of a person? I would suggest in the future before you mis-inform people you should research the facts or you are just spreading your own BULL-SHIDO. I have studied Uechi Ryu, Shorin Ryu, Shorinji, and Goju Ryu,.
