*Ken Ogawa (Goju) a fierce fighter from Morio Higaonna's Yoyogi dojo.

*1979 AAU Nationals

*Kyokushinkai, Ashihara Karate, Enshin. The Sabaki Challenge.

*Chapter on South American dojos

Regardless of rank, or time training, martial artist will relate to many of the stories.

Having had the opportunity to train with Tony Bustillo, I can tell you that he believes in a "no nonsense" approach to budo. The old timers at my dojo fondly remember that it was one of the few times that we visited another school and they gave us something to think about. Tony Bustillo is an authentic karateka.

Dr cespedes,

It has been 7 or 8 years since we trained togther.

You had a good group of students. I remember that the workouts were productive and both of our groups benefited from the exhange.

Looking forward to training with you again.
Whenever you get around to it, your feedback about the book is most welcomed.
