Willie Crawford

Hi, I'm Willie Crawford, webmaster at TournamentSite.Com. I fell in love with karate back in 1978 when I was a student at North Carolina State University. I would eventually become a student of Dr. Don Ridgeway, who was teaching there, and devote many hours to practicing my beloved traditional Shotokan Karate at (Rhogun Dojo). Later, the military would send me to the Pacific where I would study Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo under Shihan Marcus Devalentino and his instructor, the late Odo Seikichi.

I also enrolled my 2 young daughters in Devalentino Sensei's dojo where they both earned their brown belts prior to the military moving us to Alaska. The Devalentino dojo, operated out of the fitness center at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, was fairly new when I discovered it. I was the first of many student at that dojo to earn the coveted black belt.

Hawaii had numerous martial arts schools covering dozens of styles. Outside of Okinawa, I don't think I'd ever seen a place with a heavier concentration of martial arts schools. Oahu had martial arts tournaments practically every weekend... all year long.

All my life, I had a fascination with the amazing feats martial artist, and even ordinary untrained humans were capable of... particularly when under stress. I can remember reading of Chi, or Ki, when I was very young and setting out to learn more about this mysterious force. I don't think I really began to understand Chi until I took a course by Dr. Robert Anthony. That course taught me many secrets to life-long achievement, personal power, prosperity, health and happiness. It tied together many of the things I had studied in other disciplines including my beloved karate.

This site is a tribute to my love of all martial arts and its character building merits. While in Hawaii, I participated in numerous tournaments and always enjoyed a friendly karate sparring match. I do have to admit that I was happy when I finally turned 35 and could choose to compete in the 35 and older category. The older karateka seemed to have so much more control :-)
