Abstract | Contents
"Bob Wall has done it again, a man of many firsts, he has now authored the first "Who's Who in the Martial Arts," a book that will give many of the leaders in the Martial arts the recognition that is due them. The Who's Who in the Martial Arts is long awaited, and thanks to Bob Wall, it has finally arrived.-Chuck Norris, World Professional Middle-wt. Karate Champion (Retired); ; This book is a tribute to, but a few of the many within our fraternity who in theri own humble way exemplify an incessant endeavor to excell. In addition this book is an indispensible desk reference to locating thowe persons and the more credible places to practice.-Hayward Nishioka, U.S. Judo Champion; ; "A landmark book for the Martial Artists and their accomplishments, known and some previosuly unkkniwn, and at last a directory of schools."-Jerry Smith Porfessional Karate Trainer; ; This book is a great accomplishment for all Martial artists, and there couldn't have been a better authority to write it than Bob Wall.-Jhoon Rhee, Jhoon Rhe Institute of Tae Kwon Do, Originator of Safety equipment; ; A proper Who's Who in the Martial Arts is long overdue. The reason, undoubtedly, is that there have been few men with the ability, dedication and knowledge to produce one. Bob Wall has the necessary qualifications, and I believe this book, along with future revised editions, will be a must for the llibrary of anyone interested in the Martial Arts.-Al Weiss, Editor-Official Karate Magazine; ; "This is the first and only book that puts all of the people who really developed the Martial arts in the U.S., with all the facts to back it up.-Jeff Smith, World Professional Light-Heavy-wt. Karate Champion
