MessageI enjoyed reading your personal history...Karate has been a big part of your life for some years now...I started a blog (2009) to kind of document my life so my grand children might find out about their grand father some day after I'm gone...It's called "Uncle Ron's Blog"...I'm 78 years old now and I earned a purple belt in Karate in 1957 while serving in the Army at Ft. Lenard Wood, Missouri...Since I'm only allowed 500 characters I ask you to view my blog and check out my post on Tues. Oct. 1,2013...Cheers!

I attained shodan under Teshin Hiroshi Hamada in 1998, and am a member of Dai Nippon Butoku Kai.
I am interested in hearing about your ryu, as I know several people who have trained in Shuri-Ryu, and are looking for a dojo, and sensei in your area.Please be so kind as to contact me, so that I might have the opportunity to discuss this with you. Thank you

MessageMr. Wagner, I ran across your site today. What great memories it brought back looking through the photos you had posted. Seeing yourself Stan and Angie Cole Mike Matthews Jenny yeh, and many more that I had grew up training with. I can remember the first time I had met you it was around 1987 Stan and Angie had left Jerry's school and went over to Mike Matthews to train with him and Larry Hodges and I followed shortly there after. You had came there to teach a few classes that I took part in. Then around 1994 You came to teach some weapons classes at David grady and Larry Hodges school in Arden I was also teaching some classes there . I always thought of you as a class act guy great teacher that had a real passion for the martial arts. I'm still active teaching some and running some tournaments. Hope you doing well great website.

MessageGood day to you ! , I was just looking at your site , and I stumbled upon the Shorei-ryu family tree by Dave and Leslie Thomas , lol ... I hold a 7th degree Black Belt under Shihan Charles Bridgewater , I promoted Dave and Leslie from brown belt to Ni dan , after some years that they spent with Mr. Bridgewater , but as far as them putting their names under Shihan Bridgewater's .... I'm not to sure he would like that ..lol you might want to check first with Mr. Bridgewater before you posted this .... I don't believe they have any Yudansha certs. with his name on it ... and quit frankly I a little upset they did not mention who really promoted them if you know what I mean .... When I promoted them Mr. Bridgewater shook his head and said..you did what ??? they are good people don't get me wrong , I think they just got a little carried away wanting to be recognized my Shihan Bridgewater , they do have lineage , but not directly ,,, and if you change it and I hope you do ... please leave me out of it , these were just a couple of student years ago , I think now that maybe I should not have promoted them. I hope I shed some real light on this subject , and no disrespect , and if I ever see them , I will straighten them out ! .... Yours in Budo ! ...Joseph Slonski 10th dan
