Back in the 1980's a four part interview was published in the well known Magazine "Fighting Arts International"

The man interviewed was a New Zealander by the name of Gary Spiers, his story was one of the best articles I had ever read

Gary Spiers was a very well known martial artist in other countries, I say "was" because he unfortunately passed away 

Below is the webpage address to the complete article courtesy of CQB Services based in the UK,  if you have the time please read it, I would appreciate your comments and thoughts

Did you know Gary Spiers or have an opportunity to train with him?
