Since I got dragged into this by bladecal, by him useing my name. I thought I would add my 2 cents. I am the "Scott" guy he mentioned earlier today, and yes I can say I have had the "Al Martin Experience". Not even sure where to begin...I've been practising Shorinji (a relative of Shorin) for 30 years so I have direct knowledge of the kata his system is supposed to contain in order to be called Shorin....it only has one that I saw. He ran me around like a fool promising money for a mixed martial art gym, to no avail, just kept lieing to me and "bladecal". He has county records in a couple of counties around here for fraud. If you live between fort meyers and tampa and want to train in Shorin drop me a line and I will point you to a qualified non-scam school. Basically stay away from him, he's a manipulator and a fraud.
