    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone Heard of/Trained with Kim Murray

    Kim Murray is the MA coordinator at Rochester Institute of Technology, he runs Kims Karate Academy in Rochester. Claims an 8th Dan in Okinawa Isshin Ryu Karate,

    Amazon link:
    http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Okina.../dp/B000FJTV7E

    BS Flags:
    - Has a black belt at home DVD set available of Amazon.
    - Kids classes at the Dojo, website is currently down, Wayback Machine gives me some pages from 2001-2006
    - No mention of Kali experience yet is currently teaching Kali at RIT.

    Worth pursuing? Should I wait for the first class in two weeks and see what happens?

    Thoughts?

    Heres the description for Kali level 1 from the course catalog:

    This course is a study of Filipino Indigenous Martial Arts used inthe Pre-Hispanic colonial periods of the Philippines known as Kali, Arnis and Eskrima. The practice of this art was trained in the guise of cultural dances and theatrical plays to hide the Martial applications from the colonial powers. This course will explore the system's unique training method that begins with weapons & transfers the same movement to empty handed defensive applications using a 3 dimensional thought provoking process of deciphering & understanding body mechanics.Class includes skills through the use of double/single sticks in place of blades & use of these tools to develop plymetric & 2 man dynamic drills.
