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.

Tang Soo!

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.

I wont go into specifics. As it is not my place to do so.
Not to be that guy, but why say anything about it in the first place? Wouldnt 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?

Dont get me wrong, Im 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.

Around 1972. From left to right: my teachers 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 Nakamuras 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 Nakamuras 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 dont have any pics of my teacher with Nakamura.
