Russ Smith

November 9, 2007

Russ Smith – what can I say about this friend from Florida? Got to know him like 3 – 4 years back through some forum interactions and I have always thought of him as a real serious seeker and I still do.


Apart from owning one of the most informative sites loaded with all sorts of info about
Japanese/Okinawa fighting traditions, Russ is also looking deeply into Chinese forms to look for co-relations – a quest that has lead him, first, to Penang and now, Sarawak.


I am amazed by his understanding of Chinese methods and all the Masters who heard and saw him perform in Penang share the same opinion – this is one man who really knows what he is talking about.


And to watch him present in that unassuming manner just earns him more fans among the local CKF community.



Well Russ is here in Kuching with me and more than just a tourist, we are actually getting down to laying more plans and projects for the near future.


For a karate man to show up in a TCKF event is already “outstanding” and to do so in such good-natured manner is simply in a word, brilliant.
