Testimonials for Grandmaster Luis Morales:
"An honor and a very real pleasure to meet you in Las Vegas. Your seminar on “Pressure Points” was simply the greatest. Wishing you success and health in the years to come."
It has been my distinct pleasure meeting you and having the opportunity of attending your seminars. As we have spoken about recently, Tuidi is exactly what the Karate-Ka needs to know. It obviously forms the basis of the reality of our KATA.
Sensei Jack Kramer and I will be arranging a seminar in the near future along with Sensei Ron Gaeta, our mutual friend of many years."

Your seminar in Hackensack NJ was great, very interesting and painful, but a lot of fun. Thank you for your willingness to share your knowledge and experience in the "old ways" of karate"

"Dear members of Bugaku Renmei:
I just would like to tell you as you already know that you are fortunate to have such a honorable leader. It was an honor for me to meet him and be able to spend time sharing each other's knowledge. He is truly a person of high integrity and strong moral fiber and it was God's blessing that I met him. His knowledge and skill is genuine and I know he has earned everything he has done. It is not always that you meet a man who truly is genuine in his knowledge of the martial arts and you, as members and students are very fortunate to have him in your life. I am bless to have him in mine now."
God Bless you always,
