At Kyokushinkan Honbu, in the hearts of his fellow students of Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, close to his friend, Kancho Hatsuo Royama.

That’s one of J’s size 16s . . .

    That is totally awesome! That flag with the blue thing…last picture…is that for the sovereign nation of Wankel Engines?

    I like that b&w portrait; J has a sort of Brando-ish brow.

    That’s fantastic. I showed this to my black-belt sons, and my oldest wanted to know ALL about Jacques. He’s been studying Stalin in school and was amazed at what little I was able to tell him about J. Time to buy the book!
