Ryu Black Complete!

Shouts to that believes in me...there were some powerful opinions about my quest to get funds for the Ryu Black album..at the end of the day "70" people believed in backing my project and thus my will, by the grace of God, be done.

Much love to the 70 friends, fans and family that supported me. Much love to everyone that wanted to support but could not...financially help out.. I appreciate u retweeting about my project selflessly... (Applebum Jp thank u so much!!!)  Shouts to Whitnee for giving me one of the most incredible pick me up emails after I was shot down by others who did not believe...shouts to the countless friends and family that hand encouraging words for the duration of this quest.  So many great people donated... it was me watching objectively as the underdog, face an unbeatable opponent and with the help of people that cared about me..each one of you jumped in to take a swing and help me win! "This project has no corporate sponsors... it for the people and is backed by the people!"

ピース, everyone

ピース, everyone


俺はリュウ・ブラック。24/7 音楽のこと、曲を作り、詞を書き、ライブでのパフォーマンスのことを考えています!



現在、1/11/11(2011年1月11日)に発売予定の新作、初のソロアルバム(リミテッド・エディション)リリースに向けて準備中です。タイトルは "PERFECT 天” (a.k.a Perfect Heaven) このアルバムは、全体を通してミュージカル的要素が含まれたものとなっています。(サウンド・オブ・ミュージックやウェスト・サイド・ストーリーのようなミュージカルではありません!)これは、世界を旅し、友に出会い、真の幸せを追求する戦士のストーリーです。俺がリュウ・ブラックの名を掲げ、世界中(ニューヨーク、ニュージャージー、ペンシルベニア、フィリピン、カナダ、中国、日本、アトランタ等より)から集めた尊敬するインディーアーティスト達に、共にこのアルバムのストーリーを作り上げてもらうため、曲をコラボすることでそれぞれの登場人物を演じてもらいました。"PERFECT 天” の楽曲は俺の大好きなテレビゲーム、ストリート・ファイターⅡにインスパイヤーされたものです!アルバムのアートワークはDC/VertigoのアーティストRon Wimberlyによって手掛けられました。


このプロセスを安全に、シンプルで楽しくするために KICKSTARTER.comと提携し、"PERFECT 天” CDリリースのため、友達や仲間、家族からドネーションを募っています。

GAME of Death the Lost Scenes

I can't help but feel completely unfulfilled when thinking about all of Bruce Lee's movies and then thinking about the Game Of Death. I hope in another lifetime or reality I get to full enjoy Bruce's complete ideas and story with his completed version of the film. It'd be dope if in another reality Bruce was still alive...I'm so curious how some of the fighters he trained would do in MMA jeet kun do style anyways.. enjoy the below scenes..shouts to Bumpy Knuckles aka Freddie Foxxx

The Tribute to Master Oyama - The Fighter In the Wind

Ose! My uncle and my father used to study in Master Oyama's school in the 60s and 70s run by Sensei Nakamura (see Seido). As a young boy I had the privilege of going to the same school in Brooklyn (55 Flatbush Avenue..it's no longer there :-( I studied under Sensei Kanamura ;-) Ose!

Master Oyama's Kyokushin Karate makes you fearless... I sparred a lot in that dojo at the age of 16 and went up against 20 and 30 year olds! I won't go into detail about the results ;-) I was nice back then ;-) In Mas Oyama's younger days.. he wrestled bulls barehanded! eat your heart out el matador!





Enjoy this movie "Fighter In the Wind" based on the true story of Master Oyama!
Kyokushin Karate is Hardcore! Seido Karate is Hardcore!!!

Kyokushin is the root of today's Seido Ose!!!



peace 4 now

World Order - Genki Sudo

I had the priviledge of meeting Genki Sudo after helping promote & celebrate the Step Up 3D party this past summer with Step Up 3D's Mari Koda and friends!  It was a good look for celebrating my birthday as well!!   Genki is a champion that retired pretty young and now is pursuing a career in music..  His fighting style was so unorthodox..I'd have to slightly compare him to Sakuraba even though those 2 are really, really different.  It's only because of the charisma and uniqueness Genki brings to the ring...his music videos are as unique as his fighting style!










(Genki Sudo and me)




I got to build with Genki for a little while after the party in NYC... such a great young man!  Good luck out there Genki.. see u again soon!  Ose!!
