I’ll never forget this image captured at the Nisei Festival, Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, in August, 1996. This little Japanese cherub was the first one up on stage. He faced the audience, gave them an angelic smile, turned to face his opponent (a girl twice his size), assumed the karate position, then flipped her right over his head. The crowd went wild!

  1. Violet of Violet’s Veg*n e-comics: Finding this old transparency was like finding a long lost child. A photographer becomes very close to the people he/she captures. They become a second family…a global family.
    Thanks for liking a member of my family.
