Speaking of Bill Wallace.....
Had a 4hr. workout with him last sat.
Myself and about 40 others spent the
afternoon learning new ways to hurt.
Bill is 64 yrs.old and still amazing.He
must have kicked over 200 times by the
time we finished.
Went to dinner with him that evening and
what a trip that was,what a hoot! Ever seen
a 64 year old kid? What a great guy he is,loves
people and has absolutely no ego.Made for
quite an enjoyable day.
The first time I saw Bill fight in a tournament
was in 1966 at the MedinahTemple in Chicago...
also saw him at many tournaments in the early
'70's. He regularly attended the Mich.State University
tournaments.

Bill Wallace is a good man. I remember seeing him in one of the first full contact tournaments. I believe he won the light heavyweight, with Joe Lewis winning heavyweight.

Everyone tells me that Bill is a great karateka, good human being, and a fun-loving guy.
