Caribbean Training Cruise


This historic group picture was taken in San Juan, Puerto Rico

From August 8 to 17, 2013, Grandmaster Crandall led a team of 14 American Eagle Style black belts on a training cruise destined for the Caribbean. The team embarked on Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas from Liberty Bay, Bayone, New Jersey with four full-day stops in Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Saint Maarten, and Haiti with six days at sea. Grandmaster Crandall has led similar teams to China, Russia, Japan, Australia, and Italy, but this training cruise was the most instructive and informative international trip the American Martial Arts Institute has held to date.
