We had a couple of students ready to test for their green belt this last weekend. It's more of a formality that a test. They had already attained the knowledge and ability.

Here's some photos and videos and your feedback is welcome.

During the sparring they were instructed not to kick to the legs ot do any groundfighting.



From left <<< to right. Matt, me, Vincent, Randy, and JR.

We have more students and a bigger school in Ft.Smith, but today some of them came up to 144:1.



I don't know if he was kicking, or got knocked off balance,lol.



White belts, going at it!

What's the difference between American Goju Ryu and Japanese/Okinawan Goju Ryu?

There's no Ryu.

It's just Goju, it's just fighting, it's just what works for us.

We aren't connected to any high class ryu or political BS structure. wink

I like the sound of it! I suppose its similar in Nature to Kyokushin, Ashihara, Enshin and Daito Juku
