Article from the main page:

First and foremost this is a great article check it out. I have been reading into Seido Karate a lot lately and it seems like a great style. Next time I am in Buffalo I may have to check out some schools up there.

I first saw the documentary Fighting Black Kings about 4 or 5 years ago and loved it. Mr. Martin was 1 the 4 Americans that went over to Japan to compete in the first world hard contact karate tournament. The film shows tons of training from all sorts of countries.

Here is video 1 of 10:

Just thought I would share.

Good to see that Hanshi Martin is still training. He has changed quite a bit but I guess thats what more then 35-40 years of training will do for you. He is obviously still active I have that tape lots of great hard fought matches interesting view of full contact Karate.

Oyama was a Korean but he trained in Japanese Karate it shows in his rules of sparring.
