Bob Sykes... A Finger Pointing Special

This months article focuses on Martial Arts Illustrated Magazines very own editor Bob Sykes. For those of you who have not heard of him....well he's the reason...
Are still hiding.
I feel very honored to have been able to ask him some questions, in which I feel clear up and help martial artists out there. As a child who grew up reading his mag and knowing deep within me, even then... that when I would be older I would reach out to him, in the writing world and try to help others who still have that little boy within with many questions.
Regardless of publication, Bob is a great martial artist, a fair person and has walked the walk. He has a sense of humour that can be friend or foe, a true Maverick for any lad to look up to.
Enjoy... Duane.

Jim Kelly...a cool cat.

 I'd just like to put a few words of respect on my blog for the late Jim Kelly. Jim Kelly was a great Karateka and athlete. He has been compared to Bruce Lee and Ali for his speed agility and muscle tone. Upon remembering the emails we sent back and forth he was a polite humble guy who always gave his fellowman the time of day. He was also fond of tennis.
I have gone more in depth in an article for Martial Arts Illustrated Magazine and hope we can all enjoy his work and warm human qualities.
- Until next time... Duane.
