To me he was the greatest kickboxer of all time. I still watch all his films, and recently his fights on YouTube. His style was non flashy but productive and I'm trying some of his tactics out for myself with success! I love the way he would lure in his opponents, by taking a few shots on his arms then suddenly ...counter!
And not to mention in the 90's when he came from retirement to win again! He is a inspiration for all martial artists either kick boxers or Karate men.
As I mature I now find that Don Wilson's patient style works well for me now too instead of just rushing in to prove my speed.
Thanks for being an idol, then & now!
