Nisei Karate Kid
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!
