40 years ago.

Post  josh johnson on Mon Jul 07, 2008 6:28 am

A photo of the youthfull Josh Johnson, 18, 1967, demonstrating what he thought was the perfect Gyakuzuki, 8th Kyu 3rd class pass, obviously Mr Suzuki wasn't paying attention.
Nice haircut, nice Gi, old Hi-Ryu-Kan badge, dodgy curtains in the background.

I seem to remember the club in Castleford was called the Hi Ryu Khan and had a light outside the window (circular in red) that lit up with the name over the top of the wado ryu fist. Inside, were stage curtains similar to the ones you're executing the gyakazukie in front of.

I'll have to dig out some photos and somehow put them up on here.

Cheers
