Joe Lewis – Passing of a Legend

By admin | Filed in Announcements, News | No comments yet.


Martial arts & karate legend Joe Lewis passed away yesterday after his extended bout with brain cancer. Lewis was known for his dominance in tournament karate back in its heyday and for his full-contact kickboxing career. He was also a masterful teacher who dissected the fight game and educated his students on the intricacies of his fighting method.

Joe Lewis was also famous for his association with the late, great Bruce Lee.

He will be sorely missed…
