Five men came together in a quest to create an efficient martial art
workable for the streets of Hawaii. Up to that time the traditional
martial arts were very restrictive and did not allow the free expression
of the ideas of it's practitioners. Training secretly for the first two
years the founders were able to blend their arts together away from the
prying eyes and unwanted commentary of others. They called themselves
the Black Belt Society.
The five men that
created this art were,
- Walter Choo
(Tang So Do)

( Danzan Ryu Judo and Ju Jitsu)
- Frank Ordonez
