This week's guest , "The Man who Fought 'Em All", and a true American Karate Pioneer, Victor Moore.
In the show, Sensei Moore talks about how he began training in the martial arts in the 1950s, his early teachers and his "Old School" training, and his path to opening the first karate first karate school in Cincinnati. He also gets into some of the discrimination he faced during his career.
