Steve Muhammad-Black is Beautiful 6

It was recently after showing my uncle a documentary about black folks in martial arts that I came across Steve (Sijo Sabir Muhammad) ). Steve is an incredible martial artists with many years of experience under his belt.  He was taught by Ed Parker, and has himself trained hundreds of students. He is a 10th degree black belt in Karate Kenpo and he is the founder of BKF-the Black Karate Foundation, which he started because of racism in the competition circuit and magazine publishers of martial arts. He was a good friend of Bruce Lee's, and if you saw "Enter the Dragon" there is a scene where Jones visits an all black karate school where Steve was the head instructor. Steve also trained many brothers as part of the Nation of Islam's security and suprisingly was an LAPD police officer before joining the nation.  And he also served as Wesley Snipes' bodyguard at one point. Steve is still practicing and teaching today, much respect to you brother. You can visit him on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/steve.muhammad.9
