Hall of Fame

Bruce Lee

Back in the days when American fighters pioneered competitive martial arts in the USA, Mike Anderson’s Professional Karate magazine created its own Hall of fame. In every issue of the magazine one excellent master of the arts was introduced with a feature article and a full-colour poster on the back page of this unique quarterly periodical.
