Thanks for posting that, Buka. I’ve heard so many William Oliver stories from my teacher, others in Seido, and from people in my former organization (they were Kyokushin/Seido before they broke off) that I feel like I knew him. As crazy as that one sounds. My teacher speaks very highly of him, and if 2 weeks go by without him mentioning Oliver, it’s a long time. One of my favorites was when my teacher sparred him and Charles Martin at the end of his first and second dan tests. Oliver picked up his right foot and windshield wipered his face with it. After picking himself up off the floor, Oliver picked up his left foot and did it all over again. Oliver did that to him BOTH tests. He expected it the second time around, but couldn’t do anything about it.
