We Are Shooting A TV Series
"Legendary Masters Council"

 We are producing a martial arts tv series with the help of Dark Minds Productions and would love your support!  “Legendary Masters Council” is a NEW tv series focused on the physical side of martial arts, as well as the more important side WuDe (martial ethics.) This project is a great way to promote unity through martial arts. Please take the time to go through the Kickstarter and make a pledge to breathe life into the show. We can not do this without your help. Donating even $1 will make us one step closer to our needed goal by April 23rd.
