Call in to speak with the host
GM Victor Moore, 10 degree Dan in Shuryi Ryu and is the founder of the Traditional World Karate Association. Dr. Moore has studied martial arts for over 50 years, and is a four-time world karate champion and the 1st World Karate Champion in America. His instructors included: Ronald "The Grave Digger" Williams, Harvey Eubanks, William Dometrich, Jim Wax, Maung Gyi, and Robert Trias. This was karate competition back when there was full contact and no weight divisions, you were struck, you bled, things got knocked out of place. He defeated every national champion that was competing during the 60’s and the 70’s, Chuck Norris, Jim Harrison, Mike Foster, Fred Wren, Glenn Keeney, James Hawkes, Jim Kelly and even beat Bruce Lee in a speed contest 4 out of 6 times. Vic defeated Bill "Superfoot" Wallace. Vic handed karate great Mike Stone his first defeat as a black belt, after Stone's 91 straight victories. Vic defeated the late great Joe Lewis to become the 1st USKA World Pro Karate Champion. Victor Moore accomplished a lot in his day considering that was a time of extreme racism. He was the World Champion and the magazines would barely speak about him.
