Anyone hear of James Neeter!
Has anyone heard of a martial artist from Uckfield, East Sussex, England named James Neeter? I have been surfing the web and looking for some Shorin Ryu Karate in England where I am going on vacation, and this guy reeks of total BS.
This 35 year old dude from the U.K. has many BS posts all over the web. He has joined many talk groups. But there is no real info on him or who his teachers are/were. He is claiming to be Matsumura Shorin Ryu, but yet doesn't practice anything that Master Kise or Grand Master Shoshin Nagamine taught or any of the Kobayashi or Shobayashi groups teach. And the funniest thing to me is his Blog. He makes many referrals to Sakugawa and has borrowed many links.
I think he is total BS, as well as what he is trying to sell. (himself)
I haven't seen that many people in the U.K. associated with Okinawan Shorin ryu and this guy posts like he is some sort of Master. He is rude and arrogant and puts down many good traditional and mixed martial arts people especially shorin ryu people... this screams BS to me.
Has anyone ever see this guy in action or any of his students? Does he have any students? Has he even trained with anyone? He sure does like to talk crap about everyone else!
