Master Oyama on one of his vacations visited the country of the Bahamas, while there on the shores he saw a young boy exercising and took interest in him. He asked him "would you be interested in learning karate" he answered yes but my farther died and i'm number 11 out of 13 children and my mom can't afford it. He said where do you live, and expressed interest in training him. He took the boy home to his mother and asked her permission to train him. He said I will train him for free. He's mother said son if that's what you want to do, then its fine with me. Oyama took the boy and started him off at a green belt level at the age of 14 he made him a black belt. Eventually he became one of Oyama's top students studying in the US and wound up being head combat instructor of our military and lead riot squad at the Bahamas Prison. That boy is my dad, he put me through hell but I love Master Oyama for that. R I P Master Oyama
