Okay let us communicate about your art if we may...http://digsfossils.com/karate.html
Here is the website for your art. I notice Mr Pluchino is a member of the World Head of Family Sokeship Council Member... hmmmm... here are some threads on here about the "Council" and some of its members:http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...ue#Post15970579http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...ue#Post15981345http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...ue#Post15882255
Your teacher talks about having "30 years of experience", yet his actual credentials relating to martial arts are pretty thin on the ground. Oh wait, except for "Samauri Jiu Jitsu". WTF????? Do you mind telling me what that is suppose to be?
Is this another Samauri fantasist pretending to be teaching the warrior arts of ancient Japan without actually knowing the first thing about them? What knowledge of Koryu does he actually have? What is it you actually learn?
I'm sorry to sound harsh but it seems your teachers Ju Jutsu credentials are dubious to say the least. Traditional Japanese Ju Jutsu is incredibly hard to find in the Western world. Read this thread:http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...=0#Post15981165
If you enjoy doing what you are doing, keep at it. I wouldn't go within a mile of Mr Pluchino's class though based on his website. Each to their own, as they say.
