Shorite ryu tai jitsu...
Anybody here that trains or reside in FL pensacola? Knows about this place?
Would like to have some feedback on this dojo and the said instructor...
Already fails in my eyes...
The grandmaster and founder of the tai jutsu system and the International Christian Karate Association
I've never studied his stuff, but he combines words like "Taijutsu" and "Chin Na" into techniques that don't seem to bear resemblance to traditional Taijutsu nor CMA. Definately worth checking out.
victorious hands..........Christian Ninjas?......only thing i know bout him is from what ive read in black belt magazine articles..... personally I hate fundamentalist MAs who peddle Jesus into thier trainin curriculum. some of the videos did look kinda cool

Actually, one of the magazines I bought recently had a rather large article with him in... he was crossing his style with BJJ from someone Gracie or Machado, I forget which... It looks a little weird, but good...
Edit: Carlos Machado.

The vids of it I've seen look like kempo...with no alive training...
"A lifelong student of the martial arts, he seizes every opportunity he can to study other disciplines and train with experts in other styles. His accomplishments include
• 10th-degree black belt in David German’s TAI karate
• 5th-degree black belt in taekwondo
• 4th-degree black belt in kenpo
• 2nd-degree black belt in kyokushin karate
• 1st-degree black belt in Al Thomas’ budo jujutsu
• black-belt-level rank in white-tiger kung fu
• black-belt-level rank in white-eyebrow kung fu"
You have got to be friggen kidding me, by "lifelong" he must be including past lives.
I though that the general consensus was that this guy is a tool and possibly a fraud. I'm pretty sure he got owned somewhere on this site, though I may be wrong.
Some of the regulars may be able to help out in this regard.
Edit: XEO, I beleive it was November or Decembers Black Belt mag, I read the article too, it was pretty vanilla. :beatdead:

Reason: add more ifo
If im not mistaken white tiger kung fu was banned in china, and the art died. im not 100% sure but ill try and find the article
well i should clarify. the creator went to test white tiger and he killed a man, was was forbidden to teach. while im certain that he maybe tought a kid or something, i highly doubt this guy learned it.

David German was one of Ed Parker's first generation of black belts.
He was cross training way before it was ever mentioned. He was also exposed to alot of different kung fu from various teachers.
No idea about this teacher in question, but he seems to want to blend striking, kicking, and throwing/grappling into a meld and nothing wrong with that.
Lineage means almost nothing anymore as way too many people like to sit back on their famous master they train with rather than the skills themselves.
This is so true. I would much rather train under an effective teacher who acknowledges that he has taken bits and pieces of other arts, than a grandmaster of some **** that don't work.
