    Paul Rodgers is a Black Belt?

    My wife has been subjecting me to videos of Paul (Free, Bad Company) Rodgers singing with the remaining members of Queen.

    She insists Paul Rodgers is a Black Belt in "Martial Arts." So, of course, I had to ask, "Oh, which one?" But she doesn't know. She tried to shift the conversation by telling me how well-preserved he is for a man of his age.

    So I used "The Google." The top hits weren't much help.

    Wiki.answers.com returned a page, for the question "What style of Martial Arts is Paul Rodgers a Black Belt?"
    (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_style...s_a_black_belt)


    A site called Queen Archives (http://www.queenarchives.com/index.p...gers_interview) came back with "Paul Rodgers Facts" tht included the illuminating statement:

    Rodgers is a keen student of martial arts and has had a black belt in one of the forms for many years.
    So, now this is bugging me. Can anyone tell me, definitively, if this Rock Legend actually has a black belt and in what style(s)?

    Oh, and Paul Rodgers is no Freddie.



    You can't replace charisma like that. You can't.

    This person seems to think it was in Karate:

    Not quite. PR has a black belt in Karate and he used to spar with title winning boxers in the 70's.
    Also he apparently injured Mick Ralphs when they had a row in the studio and Mick temporarily quit BadCo. So even though PR is a really nice guy, you probably don't want to get up in his face.

      "Karate?"

      Nothing more specific? I'm beginning to suspect this is a BS claim from him.

        Not sure of its authenticity, but this is the only claim of a black belt, supposedly, to come from Mr Rodgers I could find. He actually says it's name but the interviewer is too clueless to know what he said (says it sounded like 'why don't you' - maybe Wado Ryu?):
