    The Man Who Took the Gracie Challenge and Lost!

    While pursuing some videos on youtube i came across this old Gracie challenge video from back in the day (see below). The "challenger" at the 5:10 mark piqued my memory and i remember seeing his story in an old edition (April 1992) of Black Belt magazine. The article was titled "The Man Who Accepted the Gracie Challenge and Lost!" and concerned a kempo karate stylist who decided to take on the Gracie family. Anyway i'm just throwing this out there for nostalgia purposes and it was interesting to see his version of his matches with Royler Gracie and what the tape shows. I also enjoyed his somewhat underhanded comments about "...if this had been a streetfight i would have done things differently..." This link should take you to the article https://books.google.ca/books?id=-s8...allenge&f=true

    If the link doesn't work google "black belt magazine april 1992" and the article is on page 18.

    He is a Soke Shihan of his own style. “Guardian Jujitsu”

    Perhaps Royler didn’t hit him hard enough.
