Photo of the Week: Blast From the Past: Kiado-Ryu Class Ca. 1986

Kiado-Ryu Class ca. 1986

This Blast from the Past features a group test in 1986. These were wonderful times, times before cell phones, computers, and video games; times in which individuals engaged in the challenging work of improving themselves, of becoming substantive within the martial arts environment. Where is such a scene visible in today’s society? Where are those individuals who invest in themselves, their health and well-being? Indeed, where has all the substance gone?
