Ryan Parker

A 3rd degree (at the time) blackbelt in Ryukyu Kempo Karate, Parker trained under Hayek shinshi. His focus, much like that of Marcus Bossett was on traditional Okinawan Karate techniques. However, unlike Bossett who made several MMA appearances, Parker was one and done losing to Remco Pardoel via lapel choke at UFC 7. Following his loss at UFC 7 Parker was slated to compete at a future event, but a change in the contract wording that sought to disallow throat strikes apparently caused him to exit the competition, feeling that his technique would be overly limited. Currently he has a blog, Ryukuma, where he talks about the history of various Okinawa Karate styles.
