The Original Tri-City School of Martial Arts is in no way associated with Tri-City Martial Arts

The Original Johnny Casarez's Tri-City School of Martial Arts is the original Hombu dojo and the original home of Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu, now known as Casarez Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu. The Casarez Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu system is now under Soke-Dai Mark Murdock and Soke-Dai Allen Wilson. Tri-City Martial Arts was an attempted knock off of Tri-City School of Martial Arts ran by former student Solitaire Spoonamore and her husband Travis Spoonamore. This was done without the permission of Soke Casarez. Soke Casarez was also written off his part of the business by the Spoonamores, again without his permission or his knowledge. He was then told he was not welcome there anymore. They now claim they teach Ju-Jitsu under the Spoonamore system. Travis Spoonamore has no rank in Ju-Jitsu. Solitare Spoonamore was a 5th degree black belt under Soke Casarez and now one year later claiming 6th degree under Travis Spoonamore's Ju-Jitsu system. In our opinion this is not a legitimate rank. Solitaire Spoonamore was removed from the Manabi-Masho Federation due to disrespectful and dishonest behavior toward the founder John H. Casarez. Both Travis and Solitare Spoonamore have officially been removed from the World Head of Family Sokeship Council Grandmaster and Master Council after Soke Casarez rescinded his nomination for dishonest and disrespectful behavior. Soke Casarez, The old and new Tri City School of Martial Arts, the old and new Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu Federation and the Sensei and students of Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu are in no way associated with Tri-City Martial Arts. Sensei and students of our Casarez Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu federation have legitimate lineage, belt rank with signed belt rank certificates and the proper years experience for their belt rank. We earned our belt ranks through proper training time, hard work, dedication and a lot of sweat. We're honest and dedicated to our students education in the martial arts. Always evaluate your the instructor and dojo's background to see if they have legitimate rank and years in the martial arts. Beware of instructors without proper documentation or proof of years of experience.

The Original Johnny Casrarez's Tri-City School of Martial Arts is now open. They still have a little more work to do on the dojo but still open to new students.
