Re: It Had to Be Felt #11 - Abbe Kenshiro: "Trying to Catch the Wind"

Dear Ellis,
There is of course an ex judoka called Joe Robinson.Mr Robinson is still alive according to a friend of mine.Abbe Sensei and Robinson Sensei had that epic encounter many years ago.It was a challenge match.The bout can be seen on YouTube.Mr Robinson was also in movies, A Kid for two Farthings, and Diamonds are Forever to name but a few.Cheers, Joe.
