Dedicated to Grand Masters Peter Urban, Sid Campbell, Ken Knudson,

Howard Jackson, Larry Caster, Robert Trias, Mako and Master Al Weiss

We are is losing an entire generation of fine Black Belts, men who laid the  foundation for, and developed the strongest system of martial  arts in the world.  The passing of each saddens me greatly.  .  I suggest that you seek out, and talk with as many from that generation as possible.  When they pass, there will never be the likes of them again. Never.

Our Sport Karate Museum  relies on Donations of your generosity to keep the Office, On-Line Museum and Living Legends Roast in the public, we appreciate all that you would do to keep the History alive!

Brothers in Battle - Copyright 2006 Sid CampbellThere is a legend of ancient Greek history that is told of a huge hall the size of three football fields with knowledge of some of the greatest minds to ever walk the earth. Through the years it was destroyed by time, earth and disrespect . It had recorded the progress of these great minds and now it is almost completely gone!

The History Sport Karate  has not been recorded yet!!

We are just now catching up to what was past tense to them. How much farther could we be ahead if we take care of it now?

OFFICIAL SWORD SUPPLIER TO THE MUSEUM

Aloha,

Our museum’s vision is a story that unfolds before the eyes and senses of ones self, a mystery, a fable, so many stories to be told. an authentic history of sport martial arts and relics, uniforms, belts and documents of the glorious past forty years of a sport that is long overdue on statistics and history.1946-1999. The adventure of the Museum of Sport Karate™!

The detail must be authentic to the culture that you stand in.

The Five main houses are

The memory of our past sport martial arts leaders are priceless and we are  going to build a home for their memories. Imagine a bust of the past leader in bronze or silver detailed to his authentic look and style. Click on a button, A hologram will appear maybe a lady of fame or maybe just a spoke person. They start talking, going in detail who, what, when and where this person is famous for his legacy men like, Mas Oyama, Don Nagle, Robert Trias, Ed Parker, Sid Campbell, Ken Eubanks, Moses Powell, Pat Morita, Glen Rabago, Professor Visitacion, Peter Urban, John Kuhl, Al Weiss, Howard Jackson, Ken Knudson,  Stuart Quan and all others we have lost who gave their life to Sport Karate and the martial arts.


Exhibiting the founding members first and the living legends second, we will create the streets of adventure laid out such as Chuck Norris Ave. runs into Bill Wallace circle but you have cross Mike Stone Blvd. first, making it into a maze of educational, inspirational and entertaining fun — a community within the website teaching you the History of Sport Karate In America/The Golden Age (1968-1986) of your favorite Celebrities, Super Stars and Rising Stars!

A history of sport karate/martial arts in photographs, books, videos, articles, magazines, newspapers and special relics of the past sign diplomas of famous sport karate heroes and champions. You’ll get to see up close old belts from all styles from retired and past legends . . . awards, autographs, rare and one of a kind certificates, patches, decals, rings, old papers and ancient documents, ancient and modern weapons from the five houses, uniforms and never seen before by the general public — which can only be seen here at the Museum of Sport Karate inc.

This is a major project. It will take a team of avid martial artist teachers and their devoted students and other experts to make this dream a reality.


We need your help in the unification of this huge undertaking for the respect of the past and the teaching of the present so future generations can learn their origins and pass the knowledge on to others who see it.

A special thank you to Robert Young and Black Belt Magazine .

Thank you for your passion to keep me motivated.

Mahalo

Professor Gary Lee is an old-timer and knows everyone! He shares with him an Aloha spirit from his homeland and he has a sense of humbleness, but lives with him is a samurai, poet, actor, artist, historian, and warrior.”
- Erik D. Jones, executive producer of Martial Arts Exclusive

Gary Lee is the voice of Karate.”
- Michael Matsuda, President of The Martial Arts History Museum


“Professor Gary Lee should be given tremendous credit for his extraordinary effort to create a Black Belt Museum. The martial arts museum will be an institution that provides inspiration to the entire martial arts world. Not only a place honoring all of the pioneers in our industry, but also a place that informs, entertains and inspires other young martial artist to dream that one day, they too will be inducted in this prestigious museum.I look forward to one day in the near future visiting the museum as soon as it opens.”

Keith Vitali, Black Belt Magazine Hall of Fame

“Gary is a historian, a educator, a actor, a entertainer, a Samurai and a Big kid role up into one heck of a role model for kids, young adults and parents.
I have really enjoyed watching his talent grow into the force of a sport karate museum for the world.
There is no one I know who has the elite history he does in sport  karate, after all  he sold me back in 1982 to be the first martial arts show Astroworld  had and help create many shows after that year.with fight scenes, high falls, tricks, weapons and comedy
The Hollywood Stunt Show was a big hit and Gary played the lead.
Gary is like a Tsunami, this huge wave that  hits you with out any warning but you love the ride and you can not wait to get hit again and again!
If  Gary puts his passion into The Sport Karate Museum like he has his acting and showmanship , another winner!

Young Grand Master Gary Lee is what I call someone very special.We could have chosen anyone in the world to head up and direct our kids program and give a column too, but Gary came to the table with a lot of vision and concerned for our youth.
He has turned that passion into a sport karate museum for all of us .
He created The Living Legends Celebrity Roast and I have been to most of them as the guest speaker, he roasted me bringing in most of my closest friends like in Chuck Norris, Gene Lebell, Don ‘The Dragon”Wilson and so many others, it was standing room only!

Gary is a Grand Master at producing and making things productive. He is a investor’s dream , all his events have a stamp of excellence and a five star rating. In Houston. there is no one that has done more positive productions than Gary.In our office we call him Young Grand Master Lee for he is a real tree in a world of talkers and wanna be’s.
We are proud to be part of the Museum of Sport Karate and Gary Lee is one of the real Grand Masters around , I know because I signed his seventh, eight and ninth Dan Certificates.He will take the Jr. World Black Belt club and the Museum of Sport Karate to the top!!

When I took over as the Chairman and CEO of the Masters Hall of Fame 2006, I wanted  to refocus the vision of the Masters to “Recognize Excellence in the Martial Arts” as well create leadership opportunities for the martial arts community.

Armed with a new vision I began to recruit the leaders in the martial arts community.
Professor Gary Lee joined the Masters and was the host of Black Belt TV where he interviewed the Legends of the Banquet.I was impressed how he personally handled the stars of our event and how he was able to make everyone feel his Hawaiian attitude.
Professor Lee’s extensive history in Karate has proven him worthy of being a inductee in to the Masters Hall of Fame .He was inducted for his leadership and excellence in martial arts, as well as his pioneering vision for the Museum of Sport Karate .
Professor Gary Lee is a tireless professional which is evident from all the work he done to bring this Museum to life for the public and pioneers to share.
In Closing Professor Lee is a martial arts youth advocate; from Houston’s Kid’s Expo which he ran for nine years, his role as a board member for the Academy of  Masters College Scholarship program and of course the Six Flag years where he performed over five-thousand live martial art shows.
Gary has given his very best in every aspect of his duties and the Museum of Sport Karate will be another notch on this legendary Black Belt’s journey into Sport Karate History .

The Living Legends Celebrity Roast of Bob Wall

Aloha,
As a martial artist I feel humble to be a part of a special group but growing up around the pioneers of sport karate in America, I feel their legacy should be shared  in a respectful, educational, fun and a entertaining way, a museum of Pictures ,film ,autograph uniforms,specialty items ,Black Belts, magazines and very spceial items.
This why the History Generals was formed so it would be real history of the sport and their amazing stories could be told, though the House of China ,Japan ,Okinawa, Korea and America.
The Museum of Sport Karate is for all of us who love the American heros that  we help create from the time when Master Robert Trias opened the first sport karate studio in 1946 to 1999 when Steven Lopez from Sugarland ,Texas won two gold medals at World Games.
Including the Golden years from 1960 to 1987 when martial arts stars were created though movies , television and special shows like Astroworld and Six Flags Amusement.
The Museum of Sport Karate celebrates the American dream “There are no limits”
Aloha

Professor  Gary Lee shared this at Bob Wall’s Living Legends Celebrity Roast in Hollywood, California at the Burbank Hilton , 2002

“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist, and you know how few great artists there are in the world. Teaching might be even the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and the human spirit. Children are our greatest resource. Let us teach our children well and always help them to believe in themselves. That is our duty as teachers.

I would like to share the Aloha, love and spirit of Hawaii,

Mahalo my bradda’s and sisters!”
