Ed Parker

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Long Beach Internationals which Mr Parker started and which are going on right now in Long Beach California.

 Almost from the inception of the Karate Kid Blog I began posting photos and quotations from important people in the martial arts, both past and present. It was a lot of fun trying to find interesting quotations and quality photos of these "martial art masters."

However, it wasn't that easy since my knowledge of these martial artists is limited and I pretty much ran out of Masters after about a dozen postings.

Thank goodness for Shihan Essense on Facebook. Shihan Essense does the same thing, but much much better than I could ever do.

Whomever puts that Facebook page together is amazing and it has given me at least a couple of dozen more entries for my Martial Art Masters section.

I just hope my faithful readers don't get overloaded with the flood of upcoming posts.
