    Greetings.

    Bilingual in four different languages. That's just magnificent.

    If you type his name into google, you will get multiple MA related biographies and advertisements and things of that nature, all of which are about a guy named Ric Sniffen with a grandiose background from Oklahoma. Same guy? Probably. But if it is he seems to changed his little fantasy every so often.

    http://home.psouth.net/~jokim/ric.html

    My name is Ric Sniffen and I'm a Chunin subleader of the Tengu Ryu under Junin Yamashiro. I begun my Martial Arts Training at the age of 4 years old under my father Hanshi William Sniffen Sr. and his teacher Hanshi Shinoda Minoru in the Tanaka Ryu and in Nipon/Ryukyu Kaishu Ki Kempo ( Zen Combat Karate ). I currently hold the rank of Rokudan in the Art and the Title of Kyoshi. At the age of 8 I begun studying Koga Ryu under Yamashiro Junin in the Tengu system. eventually earning the Title of Chunin in Tengu Ryu.

    I then began studying the Korean Martial Art of Sul Sa Do under GrandMaster Kim H. Lee. In 1985 I was awarded the rank and title of Yook Dan Kwanjangnim ( Master Instructor ). I have also studied Keupsu Chirigi or method of striking pressure points and joints etc. My teacher passed away in 1988 leaving me the honor to carry on his Art.

    I currently operate schools in Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, and Kansas with another soon to open in Minnesota ( late 2001). My main school is in Guymon ,Oklahoma and consist of 20 full time active students who train in the VERY TRADITIONAL methods of Tengu Koga Ryu. In the past I have taught some 145+ students in the Martial Arts, along with members of Foreign Governments, Military, Law Enforcement and Bodyguards. My current group is an ACTIVE group of Shinobi 20 to be exact, we have offered our services to Japan and other foreign governments.

    My commitment to the Koga Ryu is to see that the Ryu will Flurish Forever and that someone will carry on the teachings of our great system. My commitment to each of you is that of a brother in the Art. I will be here to answer questions explain techniques do seminars at your shool etc. all you need to do is ask.

    I'm Married to a 4th Dg. Black Belt in Moo Duk Kwan Julie, and we have 4 children Nicole 15, Sabrina 12 Ricky 9 and Michael 8. Each of my children begun training at the age of 4 years okd in Tengu Ryu.

    I'm also on the Board for ninja clans to deal with ranking, systems, and problems withim the Koga Ryu.

    I can be contacted by E-Mail at anytime my E-Mail address is sniffen@ptsi.net please feel free to contact me with any questions or to help find some.

    Sincerely one in the Path
    Interestingly enough the biography on this page has a picture which shows it is the same guy, but it mentions nothing of his extensive bjj, boxing, and muay thai experience. http://www.masterbridgesacademy.home...erSniffen.html

    Grand Master Ric Sniffen began his career in Martial Arts at age 4, in the New York Budokan under the direction of Hanshi Minoru and Hanshi W. Sniffen, in the art of Zen Combat Karate. He earned the rank of Rokudan (6th degree Black Belt) in 1985 along witth the title of Kyoshi (Instructor).

    At the age of 7, he was introduced to Grand Master Kim H. Lee, the Golden Tiger of Heaju. Grand Master Lee instructed him in the arts of Keupsu Chirgi (pressure points), Kung Joong Moo Sool Royal Palace Martial Art, and Soo Bak Do.

    Grand Master Sniffen also studied the arts of Yudo, Moo Duk Kwan and Hapkido under Master J.P. Sang, earning his 5th degree Black Belt in 1992. He trained in Cambodian Boxing under Phuc Tran and the Chinese Art of Wing Chun Gung Fu under Sifu Leung and David Leung. He was a student of Monk Q. Ling and William Wu in the Art of Five Family Fist. He is a cerified instructor in both arts.

    Grand Master Sniffen operates Dojangs in Texhoma, OK; Goodwell, OK; and Guymon, OK. He has students operating schools in Norman, OK; Ponca City, OK; Houston, TX, New York City, NY and Miami, FL.

    Damn this guys claim to fame is his main school is in Guymon Oklahoma. I am from Oklahoma and never have heard of this guy, guess thats why he says his school is in Guymon where pig farms are the biggest employer of illegals. Sounds like BS to me.

    Someone else should wait a few days and email this guy. He was fairly forthcoming, but I have apparently deleted his reply.
    That was the morning my wife woke me up at 1:00 a.m. after her water broke, so things were a little rushed. It's not in my deleted items, so I probably "junked" it along with the spam while trying to get my lesson plans and stuff sent off.

    He gave a Japanese name for Bastes' instructor in Brazil; nobody I recognized. All names involved were vague. I did not get the impression of veracity. Sorry I lost it, guys.

    I attended a Muay Thai event on 3-10-2007 in Guymon. Oklahoma that was promoted by Ric Sniffen. There were 15 fights and they were sanctioned by the Native American League of the USMTA. The event drew a packed house and the show was great. I too am from Oklahoma and have been at several events in which Ric Sniffen has been involved.

    OK. Do you know anything about his Muay Thai lineage? How about BJJ?

    The part I'm having trouble with is the 2nd Black in BJJ.

    I no nothing of his Muay Thai lineage. I know him from attending amateur Muay Thai events in which my teenage son competes. Ric heads up the NAL and has sanctioned matches around the state. I understand he has a fairly large school in Guymon, OK.

    I'd love to hear who this Japanese instructor of Benedict Bastes was...maybe you could email him back and simply tell him that you lost his reply on account of your wife's water breaking? Congratulations, by the way!

    Another good question would be what BJJ team affiliation this is...
