I'm in Houston, Texas right now attending the opening of the Sports Karate Museum. Gary Lee has spent years putting this dream together and this weekend was the Ribbon Cutting ceremony. Mike Stone flew in from the Philipines to participate in the opening. There are many world champions here and some very well known competitors but nobody receives the attention and respect like Mike Stone. Many people feel that the only way they can be respected is to put on a 10th Degree or have a lofty title. Mike's respect is earned by who he is and his accomplishments. Mike Stone is the closest I have seen to a super star in karate since Mr. Parker passed away. It means a lot to me to have him at our school and I hope people take advantage of this opportunity to meet and train with a real American Karate legend.
