My strength is adaptability.
My ambition is taking every opportunity with fullness.
My friend is my mind.

My strategy is one foot in front of the other.
My way is ninjutsu.
Just because an individual is a Black Belt, does not necessarily make him a teacher. You can not award yourself a drivers license or a college degree. So, you certainly can not award yourself a Black Belt. The individuals listed on this page have met the highest achievement of being a Bona Fide Instructor in the Martial Arts. We honor these individuals who have excelled where others have failed.
Winners never quit and quitters never win !!!
There are hundreds of Brown and Red Belts that should have been listed, but they lacked fortitide, dedication, loyalty, sacrifice and discipline to remain in favor of the Association. These individuals had some of the Physical aspects of the Martial Arts, but failed to be listed due to the inability to maintain Mental and Spiritual Discipline. They have to live with this failure in life. We move on and train those who desire to aspire to the great Martial Arts Discipline of a Karateka !!!

Bona Fide & Certified Instructors are few and far between.
