Hanshi Ron Martin – Episode 57
And he said to my teacher, “Wow, your student really, really loves to win.” And my teacher said “No, that ain’t it.” And he said “Well, he wins all the time.” He said “It isn’t that he wants to win, he just hates losing.”
Our guest on this episode is Hanshi Ron Martin, a man with an amazing martial arts career. Captain of the first US Karate team, Hanshi Martin has toured the world competing, and came up on the better end against most of the best of his day. As you might expect of a martial artist from the “blood and guts” era, he has some incredible stories and he shares them here today.
We discussed the famous exchange between Grandmaster Victor Moore and Bruce Lee at the Long Beach Championships – Hanshi Martin was there, and if you haven’t listened before, you should go back to Episode 20 with Grandmaster Moore and hear him tell the story.
