BLACK BELT: Referee Jay T. Will sends Jean-Yves Theriault to a neutral corner after he knocked down his opponent in a PKA middleweight fight in Canada.
Craig Chapman: Jean-Yves came to my dojo when I was 11, and I trained with him all weekend. What a great guy. 38 years ago. Derrick Rick Palmore: I took kempo karate at JT Will’s studio in Columbus, Ohio, in the ’70s as a kid. Wow! Great memories. Jeff Frazier: Love the Iceman. One of the all-time greats.
