He has been very fortunate to have been able to train with some excellent, extremely accomplished instructors over the years.
"Each one has taught me extremely important concepts and precepts that has had a major influence on the the way I practice and teach martial arts. It has been a Great Honor to train with these individuals, some for decades, some for hours."
Here is an abbreviated version Mr. Wake's Martial Arts Lineage
Come and Train with us or if you would like to schedule a seminar in any aspect of Ryukyu Bujutsu, Core Martial Training, Common Sense Self Defense, specific kata training, bunkai (Practical Applications) etc. I think you will find our approach to bunkai exciting and enjoyable.
These theories can be added to any martial arts system and enhance your training, and bring life to years of kata training that may have become less interesting to you.
Kata (Prearranged Techniques) have many secrets built in. You can find them yourself with a little outside of the box thinking. We can share what we have found which may give you some ideas to work from.
"Humility, Clear Mind, Smart - Focused Training, Perseverance, and Dedication, - the price to be paid for excellence. To achieve excellence and then not to pass that learning along, with wisdom, to future generations is a true tragedy. So much has been lost in time; don't loose hard earned knowledge intentionally unless there is no one able to receive it."

We study, break down, practice many kata. There are many kata in existance, some ancient, some newer, all have merit and meaning. Open your mind, learn and grow, become a better martial artist than you were yesterday. Kaizen no Michi = the path of constant improvement.
