|James "Jim" Neeter
"Jim" Neeter, Sensei started karate training in 1987, at age 14, with Paul Hart, Sensei and never stopped!
He was one of only four students Paul Hart, Sensei taught in his lifetime the other three being Brian Jamison Cox, Brandon
Thomas, and Tomikko Shino. Jim earned his Nidan second degree black from Paul Hart in 2006! Paul Hart also brought Jim
into Karate Incorporated at that time and introduced him to Master Sensei Al Martin in Altamonte Springs, a suburb near Orlando,
Florida. The meeting lasted just three hours and that was all it took, James fell in love with Al's Shorin Ryu just as his
Sensei Paul Hart, had done when he first met Al in the year 2000. The meeting was followed by a nice meal and Yang
Yang Chinese tea ceremony for celebration! Al Martin has stated many times since; that though he is not the direct instructor
of James “Jim” Neeter he is proud of his accomplishments. James has permission to operate the only Karate
Incorporated Dojo in the U.K. and they are close friends. Al Martin is deeply saddened by the tragic death of Jims' Instructor
Paul Hart and Al's student and friend!
