Those wanting to secure their spot in the event can go to this page and scroll down till they see information about the 16 August Seminars at The Karate School. These seminars are sponsored by Carl Whitaker and his business The Karate School. As a former martial arts business owner in the DFW area, this writer can attest to how much of a positive influence Mr. Whitaker and his establishment are for the youth being trained at his school.
Mr. Whitaker and “The Karate School” although not grappling schools or Mixed Martial Arts oriented in nature, are good will ambassadors in the martial arts industry. The martial arts industry is one that is filled with ego and insecurity. Mr. Whitaker is one who believes in Bushido, the “warrior way” and supports the physical and mental development of others in the pursuit of Budo or Bushi meaning the martial / warrior path. This is the reason that he is working with Knife and Hand to Hand Combat.com and The Fort Worth Martial Arts Examiner to sponsor this Saturday event.
The Severn Seminars at “The Karate School” are only but one day prior to the grand finale on the beast tour, which will feature a fund raising event and Female only grappling tournament to support VFW Post 8235 in River Oaks. Although no information has been posted on the whereabouts of the Press Conference leading up to the finale event we know that Mr. Severn will be available for meet and greet and photos during his appearance at “The Karate School” on 16 August.
