*The new additions to the Hall of Fame will be incorporated in 2020.  The members of the Hall of Fame were chosen for different reasons.  However, they  all had one thing in common and that was their unconditional love and devotion to  the Martial Arts Institute, to African Goju, to South American Goju and to  myself; without which I would have found it much harder to have achieved what we  have today.  The Martial Arts Institute, African Goju and South American Goju are  now established and will continue even after my death.  For that reason; I will forever  be grateful to every one of you for the thirst you exuded in wanting to learn and the  joy you gave me in teaching you.  Your names will for ever be enshrined in the annals  of the Martial Arts Institute and will never be forgotten Thank you!  Roooarrr!!!...Ssssss!!!    

Files coming soon.
