I must lament, no one seems to know about "Young Grasshopper" anymore.

All I get are blank stares from my students, likely thinking "There goes sensei again with some off-the-wall saying that doesn't make sense". And I'm just trying to make a joke. :D

I guess I'm just an old phart living in the past...

No!

It's up to you, to educate your people, as to the martial arts initial BOOM, that they missed out on.

Good or not so good, they should be shown the ROOTS of the popularization of the martial arts in the west, circa 60s and 70s.

I suggest the book, The History Of Karate In America, by Al Weiss, who was the owner of Official KaraTe Magazine. You can get it on Barnes and Noble's search, along with many other places.

please no bad John Wayne comments... I hate it when someone brings up the Grasshopper thing... yes... I'm 24 years old and I've watched too much John Wayne movies :D

Kenpokev.... you're should be making Daniel-san comments nowadays... most of the people don't even know who John Wayne is anymore.. but they all know mr. Miyagi..

Anyway I've used the Grasshopper comment a few times myself... and everyone looks at me with a blank stare....
