Vale began his training in kenpo karate in Miami in 1970 with the Al Tracy organization. He is currently a 10th degree black belt in Chinese Kenpo. He continued to pursue the best training available and GM Vale was awarded a 4th degree black belt under Ed Parker Sr. and a 1st degree black belt with the legendary William K.S. Chow.
After competing as a kickboxer, Vale began training in grappling and wrestling under Masami Soranaka and Yoshiaki Fujiwara of the Japan Universal Wrestling Federation in the mid-1980s.
Vale coined the term “shootfighting” to describe this new style of mixed martial arts that combined kickboxing with shooting, or legitimate fighting, and co-founded the International Shootfighting Association to help promote the sport. One of the first foreigners to compete in Japan, Vale became the first American to win a world shooting championship in 1992. He has competed in shooting, kickboxing and no-hold-barred matches in Japan, the United States and Russia for the UWF, Fujiwara Gumi, Rings, K-1 and Extreme Fighting and also promoted the first professional shooting matches held outside of Japan.
One of the only martial artists ever featured in Sports Illustrated, Vale has also been the subject of magazine articles in Men’s Fitness and Muscle & Fitness, as well as appearing on MTV and CNN. Author of the book Shootfighting: The Ultimate Martial Art, he has appeared in several films, including Invasion USA. His Miami-based organization, ISFA, has more than 20 affiliated academies and martial arts schools around the world to help promote the sport of shooting.
Vale has the only school in the United States that has been certified and licensed by Yoshiaki Fujiwara and Masami Soranaka.
