Recently, I came across one of Jacobsons videos entitled Tantojutsu: Ninja knife fighting. As a kali practitioner I can tell you ninjas didn't use a Filipino knife fighting style. Nor did they steal knife fighting techniques from movies. But what can one expect from a fraud, an obvious phoney with little or no knowledge at all. Christa Jacobson uses techniques she has seen in movies. The Ninja knife fighting Tantojutsu youtube video can be found at the following link:
This is kind of scary as techniques designed to be used or changed for a scripted action scene in a movie would not have a real tactical or combative application in the real world.
At approximately 10 seconds in the vid Jacobson executes the vital Template form from the movie "The Hunted" starring Tommy Lee Jones. This particular form was designed specifically for the movie by two kali instructors hired to do the knife choreography. Check out the training scene of The Hunted Jacobson copied from at approx 1:14 or so.
The kali instructors had the foresight to change the vital template for the movie so they would be able to tell if someone just picked up kali techniques from the movie rather than actually took kali or trained in it and tried to pass the movie stuff off as authentic.
Since when is movie knife fight choreography put together by two Kali instructors ninja knife fighting techniques??? Jacobson has put alot of effort into her forgery of a system and in misrepresenting herself. Its obvious Jacobson copied the Vital template form, from the movie and tweaked it a little in an attempt to disguise the fact its from a movie. Anyone buying any materials from Budo ryu ninjutsu is not getting authentic anything. Copying techniques from fight scenes in movies isn't authentic ninja fighting techniques.
Her short Tantojutsu video is just flashy shit seen in movies it looks good on camera but has no real practical value or use in an actual violent encounter. Jacobson herself would not survive such an encounter as tactically and combatively she is a mess. She has no skill and only a broad unrealistic assumption of what real violence is and how to deal with it.
Christa Jacobson is teaching stuff she obviously sees in movies. Problem is, it is shit that will get people killed. So instead of buying a dvd or learning anything from Christa Jacobson and her Budo ryu school, cut out the middle man and Just go rent a movie. You gonna get better movie knife fighting instruction from actor Tommy Lee Jones in the movie. Jacobson has made it glaringly obvious that is where she got her information from.

Collins for all intents and purposes actually believes the lies he tells himself, always plotting revenge against the many imagined enemies responsible for Ronnie's cognitive clash between his ninja warrior fantasies and reality.
Collins videos as of late depict a very lonely and pathetic existence. He vids himself walking the streets aimlessly and in public restrooms implying that he is quite literally hiding from something....has no place to go.....or maybe just ashamed.....he should be at least.
Reality check......It wasnt enough for Ninjer Ron to humiliate himself by proving he doesn't possess any martial skills at all...the ninjer got his fat ass owned... and not by his detractors.
1. Collins is a coward
2. He just wants to talk shit online
3. He can't fight
4. He doesn't want to fight......
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Who is Collins trying to kid.... He didn't even throw a single punch or try a single kick. He had no idea what to do or how to deal with Icy Mike...Ronnie's attempted tackle was done out of frustration, because he couldn't do anything else, he didn't know how.
When that didn't work he was looking to quit. Icy mike bragged about his skill in making short work of Ron....trying to teach Ron a lesson and now Ron keeps trying to cast doubt on Mike's efforts.
Mike WAS playing with Ron. Ron, however, was trying his hardest to win and couldn't....he didnt know how.....he went down easy he got up, he wasnt hurt, then he quit on his feet, walking off looking like he was about to cry....the super ninja commando fantasy image of himself shattered.
Lets get something straight here and now....Kicking Ronnie's ass is not a fucking accomplishment, it not something you brag about, you fuck him up because he runs his big mouth....show he is a liar, then you move on. He is a loser, a panty waste, a pussy.
No one that I see is picking on Ron because he simply "lost a fight". Ron is getting his come uppings and getting laughed at online because he spent two decades LYING about himself and his martial arts background... and then demonstrated that he knows absolutely nothing......at all, has no training....at all.
Ron Collins is convinced that the world owes him something. He has a hatred of, and a jealousy for, everyone who is more successful than he is. The humiliation Ron has suffered, by his own hand, mind you, has broken what little remained of his mind. His incoherent ranting videos filmed while wandering the streets like a homeless person, is all the evidence you need of that.
Ron has quite literally fucked up his own wet dream and there is no one to blame but himself. His delusional rambling diatribes change almost from hour to hour but he remains stalkingly fixated on Roley. After Ron called a young black man, Brennan Cleveland a “house nigger” and Brennan challenged Ron to a fight at streetbeefs, instead of apologizing for the racial slur, Ron’s message was that Brennan was just covering for Don.
Ron kept demanding that Don step up instead of Brennan, claiming that Don was a coward, despite that there has been at least three times when Ron ran away when given a chance to fight Don, Don is still willing to step up. He let it be known.
Ron tried to say that any fight would have to be in Beckley, West Virginia and that he would set up the venue. He rejects anything anyone else will set up such as in Lexington. I suspect that Ron will not actually set anything up. Ron got called on his bullshit yet again.
Don let it be known that he has extended his flight home to Tuesday, October 24th. That means that he has Monday free. Since it is a four hour drive between Lexington and Beckley, the realistic time that things can go on is early afternoon, about one to three pm. It was seven weeks out when Don let it be known that was the time he had free.
Despite this, today Ron posted the following, “ I have plenty of time and honestly will likely wait till October to really try to get such a site. Bunch of places closed but, we still have plenty to check around for... “
So Ron isn’t looking for anything right now, despite a narrow window that Don can be there. If he started right now, the chances are almost certain that he can find a place. But if he doesn’t start until two or so weeks before hand, those chances will go down a lot.
Ron indeed appears to be wishy washy about setting it up. At one point it wasnt a problem, he was going to do it right away then changed his mind a few hours later. It is my prediction that Ron will pull a fast one. It is six weeks out today from the time Don can do the fight. Ron will not find a gym as he promised. There will be some excuse, unreasonable demand or dodge.
Don has said he can make it to a gym in Beckley that Ron said he can set up early afternoon of the 23rd, Ron will never set it up. There will be no gym at that time. There will be excuses. I predict it here and anyone can point to it later when the excuses start.
The ball is really in Rons court now, if he fails to secure a gym at the time Don said he can make it, we will all have another example of Ron’s cowardice at the thought of ever facing the person Ron is so fixated on. At that point Ronnie's rantings will fall on deaf ears.
There will be no need for anyone to take him serious or pay him any mind at all. Ronnie is not a threat never has been. He is just a loud mouth talking a big game but has nothing to back it up. The irony is if Ron had put his efforts into training in something instead of lying about it for the past 20 years he might actually have had a black belt.
Its time to forget about Ron Collins. ONE would think he would be fixated on his supposed 25 million dollar lawsuit instead of Roley. Ronnie will fuck himself all on his own. He is doing a bang up job of it so far.....Leave him to his own demise.

Judo is a physical and moral dicipline. Judo brings people together by neutralizing differences of race, gender, religion, nationality, language, politics and wealth. Personally I have a hard time with certain acts that are just morally reprehensible. Racial bigotry is one of the most vile things one can encounter.
In United States during the 1960's the civil rights debate raged on around the country. It was the most racially charged era of our history, a horrible time wrought with despicable violent acts of racist bigotry.
Then in 1964 something awesome happened, despite the civil unrest the United States sent a team to compete in the Olympics in the sport of judo .The team made up of Americans from a variety of ethnic, religious and economical backgrounds. The US judo team represented solidarity on the world front.
The American team embodied the true spirit of Judo and as well served as a snapshot of American society of the day. The team included George Harris (African American), Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Native American), James Bergman (Jewish ) and Coach Yosh Uchida (Japanese American).
In Vladimir Putins Book on judo in his Introductory Remarks, Putin states that in his childhood (at age 13, to be exact) he was "lucky enough" to find the world of Judo: "A world of courage, sincerity and generosity. A world where the primary value is not physical force, but human qualities."
He goes on to say: "The Judo school is a school of mutual assistance and cooperation. Self-confidence, vigor, purposefulness, respect for elders, teammates and opponents are highly valued there... This sport makes our life more humane; brings people together; and gives us powerful, positive emotions."
In the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, racial bigotry attempted to raise its ugly head Egypt's Islam El Shehaby reacted despicably after losing to Israel's Or Sasson in the men's over-100-kg judo competition at the Olympics. Shehaby refused to shake his opponent's hand after the match, which is customary in judo at the end of the bout. Shehaby was reprimanded rightfully so and sent home.
Judo has been a bridge connecting many countries and many cultures. Racial bigotry of any kind has no room in judo or any other martial art for that matter.
Hate is on so many streets throughout the world. In judo there is no difference between people. There is only friendship and mutual respect between those who practice judo. We see other humans as simply humans. We see our fellow human beings as we see ourselves. The ultimate objective of judo is to improve ourselves so that we might become better citizens....good citizens.
Hate is out there on the streets and on so many levels. Terrorist groups, extremists groups, racist groups, racist bigots, etc..... are behaving like animals, not like good citizens they are not trying to be better citizens. They do so based on fear, ignorance, poverty, desperation, selfishness, perhaps even a deeply-seated evil that cannot be dislodged.
A few days ago, Ron Collins, a fake martial artist and charlatan, referred to a young black martial artist with a racial slur, calling the young man a "house nigger". There is just no excuse for this vile and despicable behavior ANYWHERE for ANY reason and I don't think Collins even considers the repercussions that his actions or his racial slurs could have. It may very well be detrimental in other aspects of his life.
Collins who operates a page on facebook called Shadow Warrior publishing did not stop there, he repeatedly hurled the racial slur online for all to see. When asked to apologize Collins very unapologetically double downed on his racist bigotry.
Collins had previously gained some minor support from people connected with a group who put on underground or backyard fights called street Beefs. But Collins vile behavior became too much to tolerate and Collins was booted out.
The coordinator of Street Beefs, Scarface (Christopher Justin Wilmore) posted a video to the Streetbeefs group explaining why he banned Ron. Wilmore specifically expressed his disdain for Rons racial attack. He related that Ron rode in the car with him, "and two days later Ron's calling some young black kid the n-word."
Wilmore further explained; "It is obvious to me that Rons loss to Icy Mike... taught him nothing. ...It's too much with that dude. Collins had to go. ...A good ass-whupping should humble anybody. I don't know too many people who get their ass beat, and get beat in the way that he did, and are comfortable just talking shit normally three days later. That's just not the signs of a normal human being."
"What should have happened is, the fight with Icy Mike should have showed him he's not a fighter in any way, shape, or form. ...He fought a dude that was smaller than him... didn't land a shot... and was dropped twice, basically, within a 40 second period. There just was no excuse and definitely no reason for him to turn around a couple days later and be talking."
Wilmore also goes on to say; "So... that's why he got removed. If anyone thinks it's unfair, I'm going to assume that you support accused pedophiles, and support people running their mouth non-stop even after an embarrassing loss to a person that you talked shit to."
I have to admit Wilmore showed more class than another forum group, the OG, and that includes Icy Mike. Mike had fought Ron in an attempt to teach him a lesson but it obviously failed.
Mike tried to teach a vile, repugnant mentally unstable person a lesson....well we see how far that went. Ron Collins will more than likely never be on StreetBeefs again...he got his ass humiliated all in about 40 seconds from a guy who was taking it easy on him....one can't even really call Ninja Ron vs. Icy Mike a fight, reluctance prohibits me from even calling it a sparring match. Ron never did a fucking thing and then walked off, he just quit and not 24 hours later was making excuses and talking smack.
Ron proved how much of a fuck up he really is....a total loser, a fake, a fraud and a fat piece of shit who has never fought, never trained and doesnt know dick about anything related to fighting, martial arts, etc. Collins will never go back to fight...he is a mental midget, a sociopath and his last online outburst exposes him as a fuck tard racist bigot.
Collins it seems isn't satisfied with just talking smack online, he wiil run his mouth till the end of his days.....proving himself to be a pussy in Kentucky with Don Roley and then again with me in Florida to try and save face from his humiliation with Don wasnt enough. Collins is completely willing to be a racist ass wipe on top of everything else.
There is no excuse or way to defend this type of repugnant behavior. It will be very surprising if anyone touches anything that is remotely related to Ron Collins or any of his endeavors.

I have sparred, I have competed, I have trained, I have boxed stepped in the ring with amatuers, club fighters and professionals. i have kickboxed, done MMA, competed in judo and have coahed MMA fighters, wrestlers and judoka. In this time I have come across alot of "neo ninjas" over the years, and most of them exhibit more ability than what Ronnie demonstrated at Street Beefs .
After ten plus years of Collins' online bragging about how tough and knowledgeable he is, and all his threats Ron Collins had to know that he would come under severe scrutiny after this. Problem is you can't spin what is seen on the video.
Ronnie for all intents and purposes was beaten the second he looked across at his opponent. It showed on his face. He simply did not want to fight. Ronnie spent most of the 40 plus seconds of the fight backpedaling never attempting to throw any strikes. He had no clue as how to block or parry or even counter anything. He was simply lost and out of place.
At the 30 second mark Ronnie was on his ass from a left delivered by Icy Mike who was taking it easy on him. Not 10 seconds later Ron quits on his feet looking like he was about to cry. Watching the vid it seemed that even the ref could tell by the look on Ronnie's face that he was done.
Since his fight Ron has already posted videos saying he lost and wont make excuses for it, but he does offer excuses......Several of them.....he slipped on something....he didn't train....he didn't take the fight seriously....he only showed up to prove a point.........Ronnie's mouth is a virtual wide open running faucet of excuses and fabrications to sooth his damaged ego.
Ronnie's diagnosed narcissism won't allow him to accept the truth. It won't allow him to accept the fact that he just isn't trained, he has no skill or a fighter at all. It forces him to look for an out other than admitting honestly that he just couldn't handle his opponent.
In one video it sounds like Ronnie said he got in a couple of shots on Icy Mike....really???? Typical of Ronnie to make things out to be different than what they actually were. This is an absolute attempt by Ron, the ever habitual liar, to save face. The actual video of the fight shows the exact opposite.....Ron didn't throw a single punch or a kick. Ron can't even take a punch from a guy who threw a very soft left hook which put the ninjer clown on his ass.
Ron says he stepped up and fought and his detractors did not. The problem with this statement is Ron was face to face with myself on one occasion and Don Roley on another and both times he dick tucked and ran.
Ron also attempts to hide his lack of ability by saying he didn't take the fight seriously.....another obvious excuse.
Icy Mike says he was drunk when he made the challenge. Ron, however, claims he pushed and or pressured icy mike to fight.
Ron is now declaring himself the victor since he will "show up and fight". Again Ron was here in Florida face to face with me and was too frightened to get on the mat which was 10 feet away at a MMA gym despite my telling him 4 times I was ready to go right then.. A gym, mind you that i have trained at, taught at and helped train fighters at.
Ron goes on to say if Don Roley wants to fight Ron he must show up in Beckley, WV. Seeing Ronnie's performance, or lack there of, at Street Beefs, a fight between Don and Ron would look like an adult taking candy away from an infant.
As for Ronnie stepping up to finally fight someone else, it doesnt mean nor does it change the fact that Ronnie shit his pants when facing myself in Florida or Don in Kentucky or Colorado and dick tucked. Nothing is going to change those facts. The only reason Ron fought Mike was because he outweighs Mike by 40 or 50 pounds and thought he could beat him.
Ron has proven beyond all doubt once and for all that he lives in a fantasy world where he is a Ninja commando. Ron simply does not know what he is doing, the proof is all on video now. His excuses are a indication that Ron refuses to accept the outcome.
Ron is a guy with serious mental issues, a former mental patient, who fantasizes about being a ninja and really shouldn't be fighting or sparring, not even casually. He should have probably spent his time doing essentially anything else. He really is in need of some serious mental healthcare.
He is grossly unfit, pathetically overweight and severely outclassed and it is glaringly obvious he is untrained.....as in never trained....at all....ever. Icy Mike was really kind to Collins by taking it easy on him in the fight.
There is losing a fight and then there is taking a real ass whipping.... If Ron keeps it up, others will not show Ron the same courtesy that Mike did by going easy on him. Personally I wouldn't have shown Ron any mercy whatsoever. I would have made sure Ron was carried away in an ambulance. Preferably with a fucking sheet pulled over his face and Ninjer Ronnie knows this.
If Ron continues to call people out, threaten people and their families, then he will be forced to learn some very brutal lessons. It is painstakingly apparent that Ronnie definitely isn't even close to being qualified to teach anything. Not even hand to hand combat.
Whether Ron realizes it or not he has even shed light on his hand to hand combat instructor claims and has forever put to rest the question of his tactical skills and situational awareness. Some liberties have been taken via photo shop but surely if Ron had the least bit of hand to hand combat training, as he claims, when he got up it wouldnt have been with his back to his opponent even if he was unarmed.
At the end of the day Ron Collins already was face to face with Don Roley and backed out after being challenged right there on the spot. Several of his buddies on site got verbally bashed to their face by Don. Ron wanted no part of it. Then in Florida with me with a mat 10 feet away at an MMA gym standing next to a MMA fight promoter who incidently has called Collins out on the numerous lies he told about that day.
Ron is a guy who has bitched out when face to face with the ones he challenged and has claimed he was going to supposedly"fuck up". He finally tries to fight someone to gain some level of self respect back, and get credit for turning up and trying but his excuses already indicate to me that Ron has clearly learned nothing from the experience thus far.
Only time will tell if he starts to train but the indicator to me that it maybe a pipe dream is he is still making excuses and clearly cares way too much about what others think of him. He got his ass handed to him in 40 plus seconds by a much smaller guy who unlike Ronnie actually trains in a martial art.
One would think it's time Ron Collins to either move on in life or, if he's serious about training, then Ron should just shut the fuck up with his excuses and bullshit lies, and just start training....
However one can't ignore the fact that Ron is completely vested in his fantasy about being trained by some mysterious non existent guy in something Ron calls omoto ryu ninjutsu and the only thing that stops Ron from training, for real, is Ron......a refusal to become an actual student and to be coached. Taking actual lessons is beneath him. Ron wants, needs and desires people to believe that he is this super ninja commando. This is what stops him from walking into a dojo or a MMA training facility to actually learn and train.
A message to Icy Mike and the ones at street beefs who are seemingly trying to help Ron .....
Although your intentions are good and honorable, it's my opinion that it's misplaced..... there is no helping Ron Collins.... You're trying to bolster and embolden an individual who not only tried to get into a two 13 year old girls' pants using drugs and alcohol. Ron also endangered one of the girl's life and could have killed her when he lost control of his car and crashed into a light pole with her in the car.....and has never expressed the slightest bit of remorse for his actions.
To the contrary, Ron continued verbaling abusing the two girls and their families online and stalking his 13 year old victims even years later. One of them he stalked and assauted at her place of work. Ron then threatened, online via social media and youtube, to break into the arresting officers home in the middle of the night and cut the officers throat while the officer lay sleeping next to his wife.
Ron then posted the officers home address online and even videod himself stalking the officer and proclaiming he could get to him anytime he wanted. The video led to his last arrest where he spent roughly 18 months locked away in jail and a mental facility.
Ronnie has victimized more people and their families than I care to count. So think again about trying to defend Collins in ANY way....Ron has never shown remorse and thinking a MMA fight will change him somehow is idiocy.

A sadly overweight and pathetically out of shape, bald Ron Collins proved once and for all that he doesn't even have the rudimentary skills to defend himself AT ALL.....and it's all on video.
The video of the Icy Mike vs. Ninja Ron fight shows a person, Ron Collins, who is completely untrained getting beaten..... completely......as in never actually fought a day in his life. Whats important to point out is that Icy Mike was going real easy on ole "Ninja Ron".
The video acts as a glaring testament that Ron has no real training, no real skills and his talk of having multiple black belts and other experience is ALL total bullshit..... all fantasy. Collins for all his tough talk over the years as a pit fighter and brawler was in trouble from the first leg kick. Icy Mike showing some class eased way off after that.
Ron's "skills" were about as expected....Non existent..... You would think that fighting a kickboxer, that Ron would expect to actually be kicked, but Ron looked totally clueless as to how to defend Icy Mikes kicks. Ron not knowing what to do about Mikes kicks was no surprise....Ron doesnt spar, train or fight for that matter. It was obvious Ron didn't know what the fuck he was doing. Ron didn't know to check a single one of Mikes kicks.
A disgusted Icy Mike walking off, robbed of a fight and perhaps realizing that Ron had no training at all, and Ron's talk of having multiple black belts and beating up several cops was all a lie.
Ron did not throw a single punch didn't attempt a single kick. Ron was looking for a way out of the fight once it started, he had no fight in him, so he was looking or waiting for an opportunity to quit, and quit he did, on his feet, walking away.
Ron didn't even have the rudimentary skills to defend leg kicks. Reaching down with his hands to block them is a definite indicator of having no skill or knowledge at all. It was a response of a totally untrained person.
All of Ronnie's tall tales about beating up cops and competing in pit fights are out the window now. Ron proved he is an extremely overweight, windbag, who kept backpedaling from a kickboxer until the inevitable and Ninja Ron didn't land a single fucking punch or a single fucking kick. Rons attempted take down was piss poor pathetic and he ate a couple of shots for it. Icy Mike was being more than charitable for the 40 plus seconds that he carried Ron Collins.
Ron barely responded to any of Icy Mikes shots as they were coming in. Ron showed that he has never trained and has never really actually sparred. He simply just didn't have the reflexes & responses that lots of sparring will give you.
Icy Mike seems like a good guy, he did give Ronnie a helping of "you really suck" on Ronnie's reality plate and Mike has some valid points when he talks about fighting. My only critique of Icy Mike is that suggesting Ron is somehow representative of martial arts training and nunjutsu is a stretch of the imagination. I believe Mike realized from the start Ronnie has not trained a single day in his life and decided to take it easy on Ron.
As for Ron, the fight serves as undeniable proof that he has no skills, no knowledge and no training at all. Ron couldn't take a punch and folded like a lawn chair proving he is not anyone to worry about and absolutely poses no physical threat to anyone. Ronnie had 40 to 50 pounds on Mike and couldn't even figure out how to make that work for him.
I hope this serves as a wake up call for you. You have spent years lying and threatening people and their families over the internet. You have told more lies than i care to write down. This is not the behavior of a rational person.
Ron, try to learn from this fight. You didn't throw a single strike you were completely lost, you have no skills and had no answer for anything Mike threw at you. You gassed as quickly as expected. You looked like you have never sparred a day in your life.
Accepting the truth now might be a chance for you to turn your life around. But your narcissism is a big problem, it's the thing that stands in you way. You have to be willing to accept responsibility totally for your actions over the years..in all sincerity get the help you need. Stop all the Bullshit rants, the skills that you claimed you had are all your delusional fantasy, they simply just don't exist. Your not a fighter and never were.
I hope that you are now willing to accept that this latest debacle shows that you know nothing about fighting, my hope is that you may be able to learn from this and actually train in something but you have to be willing to be a student, to start from scratch. You have to be coachable.
All the Ashida Kim books and your made up ninja fantasies aren't going to get you anywhere when it comes to fighting in the ring or on the street or even writing about it in a book. I sincerely hope you realize this now.
In all honesty Ron you're extremely out of shape and you looked pathetic. You are soft and not tough by any stretch of the imagination and you lack heart. You did step up and try to fight you get credit for that, it's a step in the right direction, but the physical performance itself was pathetic it showed truly that you have no skills at all and lack the tools. You didn't throw a single punch or a single kick. You need to think about that.
I know that sounds harsh but it is honest. You were gassed in roughly 30 seconds and you quit the fight on your feet....you walked away. I hope you realized at that moment, that even with a guy you had 40 pounds on and who was playing with you, was way more than you could handle. Almost every shot Mike threw landed and he took it easy on you.
I hope this really makes you take a hard look at all your made up martial arts fantasies and that you get real help and go somewhere for real training and credentials.
The chances of you giving up being "Sensei Ron" are pretty slim but now everyone realizes that nothing you claimed in the past is actually true. Ron you need to actually train.....in something, anything for real. Dont try and keep up the facade admit that it was all made up and go get certified to actually teach something.
So, again get the help you need, real help. You have some severe issues, mentally, physically and emotionally that need attention. I hope that you do for your sake....i really do.....the alternative is ending up back in jail or locked up in another mental health facility.

Unlike Collins and Kim I can back up my experience with a little something called DOCUMENTATION. I have my Shotokan Black belt certificates and Ashida is nowhere to be found on any of them. Lil' mentally dwarfed Ronnie Collins wouldnt know the truth or speak it if it landed on his face and wiggled.
To this day, Ashida Kim/Radford Davis/Christopher Hunter has never owned or operated a school in my area and both Kim and I have resided in Winter Haven for years. I myself since 1969. Ashida Kim did get rather popular in the 80's and sold plenty of ninja books, I believe the count to be around 50. There is an old saying, that those that can't teach, write books.....Radford Davis aka Ashida got his start by publishing a small book under the name Christopher Hunter.
I was training at a Shotokan Dojo back in 1980 the school was located on 6th Street in Winter haven. (Kim has told people it was his dojo) Actually the owner and Instructor of the school was a man named Steve Duncan and the other instructor was Butch Maieur. I would train under Duncan for several years until i got my 3rd degree black in shotokan. Later, as it turned out, Duncan, was a shady character himself in and out of trouble with the law and even turned informant on occassion to escape serious prison time and serious charges.
Not long before the end of the summer of 1980 Ashida Kim came into the dojo, at the time he was calling himself "Chris Hunter". He claimed to be a brown belt in judo.
That September a week long television miniseries called Shōgun aired on television. We all watched it on a tv that was set up in the back of the dojo. I really would not have remembered him except for the fact that he had such a boner for the Tv miniseries that he would show up with James Clavell's book in hand and would read the book during the day just staying ahead of each episode. One night the miniseries featured a night time attack on Osaka Castle by the secretive Ninja assassins called the Amida Tong. Radford/Chris/Ashida basically didnt stick around after that.
Not long after this he published his first book the Book of the ninja with paladin press. About a year or so later I came across "The Book of the Ninja" by Chris Hunter and when I opened the book I recognized the information in it and Chris Hunter as well from his pictures that were in the book.
The majority of the book was actually the 6th st. Shotokan school's student handbook. In the hand book were the basics of Shotokan Karate. Basic punches, blocking techniques, kicks, throws and 5 shotokan kata were in it, you know stuff like that.
Ashida had added some shit to it like pictures that replaced some of the drawings, omitted the sections with the 5 Kata, added some count dante stuff and other information and changed the cover. He had obviously got the idea to do the book from the TV series Shogun and the shotokan manual.
So the Shotokan school was NOT Ashida Kim's or should I say Chris Hunter's, who Radford Davis was calling himself at the time, nor was I a student of his. Needless to say the Shotokan schools owner and instructor Steve Duncan expressed nothing but contempt and anger about Ashida's little stunt using the schools handbook along with pictures of Duncan himself without Duncan's permission to get his foot in the door at Paladin Press.
The school has been long gone, it sat empty for years and is now a paint and body shop. Duncan the actual owner of the school disappeared in the late 90s after turning informant. As for Radford Davis/Christopher Hunter/Ashida Kim....well let's just say that the internet has not been very kind.
