    And what's he up to now?

    I mean, each to their own and everything, but there's something about that that makes me a bit sad. Calling judo 'nonsense' and devoting your life to a giant bearded wizard who lives in the clouds?
    In England, we lost an outstanding Inside Forward when Peter Knowles gave up Football (Soccer) to become a Jehovah's Witness - which begs the question as to why God gave him exceptional ability only for him (Knowles) to deny himself. Bonkers.

    He apparently is still a Witness and happy so - what do I know???

    Questions like this are a lot easier to answer without the burden of religious belief.

    Of course, there's also the British sports commentator David Icke, who one day decided that not only is he the son of God, but that the world is run by shape shifting lizard people.

    I've known some people who really loved martial arts but had to leave it behind. My former instructor became the manager of his parents' high end restaurant, and no longer had time to teach. It was a shame, since he had lots of experience in a number of arts.

    Eddie, I used to work with Peter at a tile shop in 1982. I still see him now form time to time - he works (or, until recently, worked) as a storeman at Marks & Spencer in Wolverhampton. He's still got the faith in Jehovah.
