Pics from Emperado Memorial
John Pascua, "When Emperado was teaching the class, it was real rough — we didn't have the kind of mats we have today, so we used to train on the concrete, but the thing I remember most is he always used to tell us, 'Think! That's why you have that head on your shoulders. Think about your next move, your attacker's next move. Always think.' "
I believe that these are pictures from the Honolulu funeral Of Adriano Emperado (note the casket). The memorials would be held in years afterwards to commemorate it.
