Martial arts have been the center of Sam Radetsky’s life for over 30
years. He has extensively trained and holds black belt rankings in both
knockdown and Okinawan karate and traditional Japanese martial arts and
weaponry, as well as training in many other martial arts, including Muay
Thai, Tai Chi, and Brazilian Jiu Jutsu. He has been lucky to study
in-depth with some of the greatest masters, fighters, and teachers in
the world, including being a live-in student at the Ashihara Karate
world headquarters in Shikoku, Japan, and a personal student of
Toyoshima Masayuki in Tokyo for over 5 years.
As a fighter, Sam has competed in a variety of styles, tournaments, and
matches. He fought in several All-Japans–both bare hand and with
weapons, and fought two no-holds-barred challenge matches. In his nearly
20 years of teaching martial arts, Sam has produced numerous successful
fighters, taught in Brazil, and introduced people to a life-long love of
the martial arts.
