pstarr said:Very interesting. Still, Bruce shouldn't have put his name on the books as it made it appear that he was alleging to have authored these books himself.
I know Mr. Tegner has received a lot of bad press over the years but people forget that he was one of the earliest martial arts pioneers in the U.S. and one of the first people to author martial arts textbooks.
Many of his basic self-defense techniques were/are very good and he did much to spread the word about the "mysterious" martial arts back in the day. His efforts should be appreciated by our current generation.

... I think there are less fulfilled lives ... he even impacted me, a guy he's never met but who will always have a good feeling whenever I hear of him or see one of his books.
Yes. I think he contributed much to the martial arts in the US and probably around the world. Who knows who else took up Judo after reading his books or will begin today!
