Darryl Vidal has been a student and disciple of the art for 37+ years. He has been teaching Karate in Murrieta for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department for the past 24+ years. 

Vidal has earned the highest honor given in martial arts, as he was awarded Grandmaster status in 2012. 

Vidal was Pat Morita’s (Mr. Miyagi) stunt double in the original film, "The Karate Kid". He was on the beach crouched in the "Crane" position on the pole. He was also in the fight scene with Daniel LaRusso's blonde nemesis, Johnny Lawrence.
