    This is my teacher's teacher. The one who brought TSD back from Osan Air Base. I don't mean to say that he alone brought TSD back to the USA

    This one is my teacher's teacher (right side) and my teacher( left side). 1990s era.

    To both I owe a great deal.

    This is one from the time spent at his dojang as a student.the student pictured with Master is not me. This student disgraced the legacy and lineage, and we not longer mention his name.

    You are better than me. It is hard for me to watch what I say when I should know better.

    Not to be that guy, but why say anything about it in the first place? Wouldn’t putting up the picture (actually, using a different one if you had one instead) and saying this is him with a former student have worked better?

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m on your side.

    You trained with He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?

    Was that before or after he tried to kill Harry Potter?

    Origin of my son's style.

    Yearbook picture from San Antonio College from the 50s of the Karate Judo Club.

    The founder Atlee Chittim is standing far right and Jhoon Rhee is standing on the far left.

    Picture was taken not long after Chittim brought Jhoon Rhee to America.

    I like the “Karade” spelling.

    Yeah I'm curious to whether or not the yearbook misspelled it or if that spelling was used some in the 50s. Karate was pretty new to the US then.

    Around 1972. From left to right: my teacher’s teacher Tadashi Nakamura, his teacher Mas Oyama, Christopher Caille, and Shigeru Oyama.

    Tadashi Nakamura was sent to the US by Oyama around 1967 to bring Kyokushin to North America. Shigeru Oyama (not related to Mas Oyama) was sent here a little while later on Nakamura’s suggestion that both of them together would make spreading Kyokushin far more effective. Christopher Caille had trained under Nakamura at Kyokushin honbu in Japan for a while and was chosen as the Buffalo, NY branch chief.

    My teacher started training under one of Nakamura’s direct students in the early 70s and continued until that gentleman left Seido in ‘87 (Nakamura left Kyokushin and founded Seido in ‘76). My teacher then began training directly under Nakamura and opened his own Seido dojo in ‘88.

    Shigeru Oyama and Nakamura remained close until Oyama passed away recently. When Shigeru Oyama left Kyokushin in the early 80s, he and Nakamura sent students to each other for dan testing and I believe held some workouts together.

    I don’t have any pics of my teacher with Nakamura.
