    No. It's been a long time. I was there 1978 to 1982. Then was in the Navy and traveled. Now I live in the distant land of Connecticut. In the 90's I used to come down on weekends and catch classes at Sensei Miraglias Shintai school.

    Besides the earlier comment about jujutsu/jiu-jitsu not meaning general art... on the first link to taizen.com, I notice in the background of the pictures that their panther logo has it written "jui-jitsu." Now, I understand typos to a certain extent... but seriously, that makes you wonder about the ability of the founder (who presumably made the logo) to claim he teaches jiu-jitsu.

    The bit about "a single blow will often suffice" on the front page also seems kind of questionable. I don't know, maybe it's awesome, but their web presence really makes me wonder.

    I know a student there. they are very much into the "one single blow will suffice" concept. They will use a strike to a vulnerable area i.e the balls and call it a day.....at least in theory.

    You go back a long way my friend.

    Shihan Miraglia was and still is one of the greatest martial artists / instructors alive!

    People have a hard time understanding just how good a traditional martial artist can be, until they saw this guy in action.

    Development of Ki strikes, amazing blocks and movements, sparring, timing, accuracy, structure, etc. Sound familiar?

    Not only one of the greatest martial artists and instructors, but also one of the classiest, non-egotistical people around. He has always been very well respected on LI.

    He still teaches a group of people on LI, and has trained some very highly skilled black belts.

    This school taught martial arts like no other - strict self defense, I am happy to have attended and don't regret a moment - Sensei Miraglia was extremely talented

    Thread necros suck!!

    As far as I know about Tai-Zen, they are a splinter of American Combat Karate.
