    Karate Team Coach Arrested on Drug Charges -

    (1996) New York City, Hector Santiago, coach and sponsor of the Metro All-star martial arts team, was arrested here in June along with six alleged accomplices. Santiago was charged with federal conspiracy to distribute and sell narcotics, as well as criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police recovered 1.5 kilograms of heroin, one kilogram of cocaine, a nine-milimeter handgun, $2,700 and drug paraphernalia at the time of the arrests.

    According to officers from the Manhattan South Narcotics Squad, Santiago is being held without bail because he is considered a high flight risk. Police estimate Santiago was making $3 million a year dealing cocaine and heroin.

    Authorities had Santiago under video surveillance for more than a month. On several occasions, he was seen conducting informal martial arts lessons to children in a hallway where he allegedly dealt drugs. According to police, Santiago, 41, stationed outlooks equipped with walkie-talkies on corners and rooftops near where he allegedly sold his wares.

      This is a STUPID agenda. For those that have just tuned in, Kungwisheshecouldbeoneofus is posting these tibits in an effort to convince us that all martial artists are somehow "evil" or deluded or demented in some way. Why he is trying this on a board that is filled with martial artists is beyond me. I guess it gives him the little satisfaction he has in his life. I will be posting this last paragraph after your posts from now on.

        Brawl Breaks Out at Parker's Internationals

        (1994) Long Beach, CA., Ed Parker's 31st annual International Karate Championships drew approximately 5,000 competitors to the Long Beach Arena here recently. But the three-day mega event - one of the largest, most prestigious karate tournaments in the world - was marred by an embarrassing lapse of martial arts discipline and respect when a brawl broke out between members of Team Full Contact and the Sherman Oaks Raiders during the Team sparring competition. The fracas escalated when approximately 30 audience members joined in the melee.

        According to tournament promoter Sheri Parker - Kongaika daughter of the late Ed Parker, the fight started when Raider team member Berry Gordon got pushed down and several martial artists from the Black Karate Federation (BKF), of which Gordon is a member, saw it as an opportunity to fight. "The main BKF guys were not in the fight," Parker - Kongaika said, "But the younger guys who have never been to a tournament, and don't have the respect for it, started jumping into it. A LOT OF THEM JUST WANTED TO HIT ANYONE."

        Zane Frazier - who cut his lip in the fight - and Jeff Newton, both members of Team Full Contact, were also involved in the fight, which team manager Alexander Baer called "an embarrassment." Newton and Frazier were barred from further competition at the event."

        While Baer admitted that his fighters were partially to blame for the incident, he claimed members of the audience were involved more than the tow teams. Baer also said the fight stemmed from a long-standing rivalry between the BKF and an Oakland-based team called Best in the West (BITW), members of which were represented on each team. Baer said the brawl could have been avoided if the tournament rules of conduct had been enforced. "In all honesty, my team should have been disqualified in the beginning for talking back to the referees," Baer said. "They shortchanged [the] Sherman Oaks [team], and I tried to tell the referee, but the audience thought we were arguing the other way."

        Rodney Solorzano of the Sherman Oaks Raiders, who have been involved in many brouhaha's in the past, was also disqualified from the event. The promoters, who called the fracas an "isolated incident," beefed up security after the melee to ensure the remainder of the tournament would be free of conflict. "[The brawl] was really a blessing in disguise" Parker - Konagaika said, "People really seemed to pull together [afterward] because they realized [the incident] came close to ending the whole Long Beach Internationals."

        KFss - The moral of the story, martial artists are some of the most sanctimonious group of individuals you could possibly ever meet; second only to religious zealots. And that is what these commentaries prove beyond a shadow of a doubt.

              I think that the strongest "point" of Kungfoolss' posts is that 'martial artists' are no more moral or upstanding as any other individual. They are as likely or, if you prefer, unlikely to commit a crime as any other person. To me, this is a given. Yet, many schools commonly advertise that the martial arts build character or help someone become better as a person, when in fact it doesn't. The intermingling of philosophy and religion only serves to obscure the true purpose of the martial arts, in my opinion. The martial arts will not make you a better individual. A psychopath, sociopath, or demented individual will not get 'better' because they 'take' a particular martial art. I'm sure that most of us that post here can agree, to varying degrees, with the above, but there are many people that do SINCERELY BELIEVE the myth that the martial arts create better people. Frankly, I would rather entrust children to the Boy Scouts than your 'typical' martial art school.

              Scary. :)

                      Dateline: New York -- A man dressed as a ninja was arrested in Central Park last week for attacking a passerby with a blowgun. Michael Tucker, 39, of Salem, Ore., was arrested and charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Tucker was found in the Ramble, a heavily wooded area of New York's Central Park, wearing a black ninja warrior outfit and brandishing a 26-inch sword, a blowgun, and two six-inch knives and a seven-inch knife strapped to his legs. Tucker allegedly hit a passerby in the head with a dart from his blowgun. The victim was treated at an area hospital and released.

                        Samurai Sword Man In Cowboy Hat Arrested At Boston Logan

                        Oct 23, 2001

                        A man who walked through Boston Logan Airport with three samurai swords was arrested on disorderly conduct charges after nervous passengers scrambled to get out of his way. Raymond Morrison, 23, of Dracut, did not attempt to breach security and apparently had no plans to fly anywhere, said Phil Orlandella, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport.

                        But when Morrison walked up to three terminals Sunday wearing a cowboy hat, with the swords protruding from the waistband of his jeans, passengers became frightened. "He caused a ruckus. People were panicking and running away," said state police Sgt. Edward Principe.

                        Morrison was scheduled to be arraigned Monday in district court.

                          The Quest for Self-Fulfillment

                          Published originally on-line in July 2001

                          By Gary Passardi

                          My Journey for learning about myself and the barriers of self-fulfillment took a long and arduous route. While my first exposure to martial arts occurred as a teenager, my quest to become a black belt has taken 41 years.

                          My first exposure as a teenager was with an article in the back of a magazine to learn martial arts at home. For a grand total of $27.00 I received 6 booklets on martial arts katas. We practiced them every day and actually became moderately proficient with some of them.

                          Wanting to learn more, I enrolled in a local school that was teaching Kempo. I studied this for a couple of years. I like Kempo because my size weighed into the strengths of the art, upper Body and power. I would have continued on in this art at that time except our instructor got arrested for selling cocaine.

                            DHAKA, May 11 (Reuters) - A Bangladesh court granted bail to seven Chinese men detained after they attacked a group of officers at a Dhaka police station with kung fu moves, police said on Saturday.

                            The seven were taken to a magistrate's court on Thursday and released on Friday, they said."The Chinese kung fu fighters were freed on bail by a special magistrate's court late on Friday," police Inspector Rokeya Sultana told Reuters.
                            But they must have to face charges for assaulting policemen, she said without elaborating.

                            The Chinese -- identified as workers from a foreign aid development project -- were escorted to the police station after allegedly punching a police officer who stopped them for a traffic violation. When the seven reached the station, they turned on the officers, "kicking and punching right and left," a policeman said.

                            People watching from the street came to assist the police and helped overpower the attackers, he said. A spokesman for the Chinese embassy in Dhaka would not comment on the incident.

                              BBM commentary-

                              At the 1982 Diamond Nationals in Minneapolis, Alvin Prouder and I fought for first place in the middleweight division. He ended up winning the match in overtime. Afterward, John Longstreet, Rudy Smedley and myself were walking to the locker room. I was walking behind them, somewhat dejected from losing. I heard footsteps coming up from behind me, and I turned around just in time to see Prouder hit me with a running punch. We started grappling, and I went down and came down on top of me. We fell into these racks the janitors used to move folding chairs around. I was just sticking my hands up in his face, trying to get his off me, and he bit my hand. So I stuck my other hand in his eyes.

                              John and Rudy finally tried to pull Prouder off of me. I had a hold of his head, with one hand in his mouth and the other hand in his eye. So when they pulled him up, I just came up with him, and I hit him again. That was the end of that. I never fought Prouder again, in or out of the ring.

                              My feud with Anderson began when he tried to throw me off the stage in Fort Worth, Texas, an the Pro-Am championship. He was real subtle-like. He'd just fall down and try to pull me over him right at the edge of the stage. So I went off on him a couple of times. He'd fall, and I'd stomp kick him. The judges finally gave him a penalty point, but he did it one more time. He was on top of me, and I couldn't do anything about it, because he had his head in my chest and I was lying on the floor. I just relaxed until the referee came over and said "Break!" When Nasty started to get up, I hit him with an elbow. That's how our bad blood began.

                              I only had one other major clash with someone at a tournament. It happened at one of the last tournaments I ever fought in, and it damned near caused a full-blown riot. I was at this tournament in Dallas with Troy Dorsey. Troy had just fought a guy name Freddie Brazil, who was a good fighter, but had a real bad attitude. He had hit Troy in the chest with a jump kick and knocked him down. But Troy got up and came back to beat him. After the match, Brazil got pissed off because he lost. He took off his uniform top and threw it on the floor and started cussing. When he walked past me, I said "Hey man, you ought to show a little more respect when you're in the ring." He said, "Screw you. I'll act the way I want to."

                              Not around me you won't, " I said. Before anything happened, Brazil's instructor, Mike Hughes, stepped between us and said that he would take care of it. "Well, take care of it," I said.

                              That's when Brazil dropped his gear and said "Why don't you take care of it!" I dropped into a fighting stance, and his instructor jumped onto my back. Brazil popped me twice and took off running. I started chasing him, and I realized that his instructor was still holding on to me and was biting me on the back. So I stopped, turned around and stuck him with a palm thrust and groin grab. Then I picked him up and slammed him to the ground. Brazil returned and jumped on my back, and some of my students pulled him off me.

                              By this time, the whole place had gone nuts. There were people just running around hitting people who weren't even looking. It was a full-blown riot. Hughes was swapping punches with three or four people, and his students were going wild, like they had been looking for an excuse for a free-for-all. I finally helped everybody quit fighting, grabbed my bags, and headed for the bathroom.

                              I had just gotten my uniform off and was fixing to put on my regular clothes, when in walks about a dozen guys with Hughes at the front. He was trying to shake my hand and apologize, but I wouldn't shake his hand. I said "Man, you're too late. You held me while your punk friend hit me, you bit me on the back, and you started all this crap. I'm not shaking your hand. Get away from me."

                              Right about this time, Brazil stuck his face in the room. I happened to be standing by the door, and when he stuck his head in, I popped him pretty good and knocked him back out.

                              That incident is what precipitated my suspension from the Amateur Organization of Karate (AOK) and my eventual retirement from tournament fighting. It also, I suspect, led to the downfall of the AOK, because they ceased to function as a powerful sanctioning organization shortly after that. (1991, Ray McCallum)

                                Chinese teacher cuts off pupil's finger

                                By Duncan Hewitt in Shanghai
                                A teacher who cut off part of a pupil's finger has been jailed for 18 months by a court in eastern China. The case is the latest in a series of violent incidents in Chinese schools which one newspaper said had reached worrying proportions. When six-year-old Li Xinjiang playfully stole a pair of shoes from his younger brother in class, his teacher, Lin Yifen, lost her temper.

                                According to the Shanghai Youth Daily, she picked up a pair of scissors and cut off a third of the boy's left index finger. Investigations revealed that the teacher, who had been at the school for two years, had no professional qualifications.

                                Beaten to death

                                A court in Zhejiang province sentenced Lin to 18 months on charges of deliberate injury, and ordered her to pay compensation to the boy's family for medical costs. The case has highlighted what the Worker's Daily newspaper this week called an alarming increase in violence towards pupils - often by young and poorly trained teachers.

                                In one recent case, a teacher in southern China was suspended for ordering an unruly pupil to eat 1,000 flies, while a teacher at the famous Shaolin Martial Arts School was recently arrested for beating a student to death.
