Then there is this, Marcus...circa 1970 reflecting what was produced by George sensei at our beloved Mattson Karate Academy, Boston.

Justin Testa is the outstanding Sanchin Kata performer...a great practitioner, a great friend, and a consummate professional in all that he did and has ever done to date.

You will also see a younger Maloney and Bob Campbell in the clip.

Most of us there were tournament fighters with a mission to prove that Uechi Ryu was a style to be respected.

In many ways the Academy was a battleground as we had to handle 'visitors' bent on kicking our butts to prove their superior styles.

Full contact sparring was welcomed in those days...lots of injuries...but lots of fun when taking on the 'tough guys' showing up constantly.
