Welcome to the first edition of ORIENTAL FIGHTING ARTS.
It is with great respect that this issue is dedicated to the late Bruce Lee [ see page 10 ] and that the title of this editorial is taken from his last completed movie.
This, in a more humble way, is also the intent of ORIENTAL FIGHTING ARTS.
It is our goal to produce a magazine that will be good fo karate and all the martial arts. Our philosophy is to further into-communication between the martial disciplines and to provide information about the arts to an increasingly interested public.
We are confident of attaining these goals, but like a beginning karateka, a magazine must learn and grow. It must draw knowledge from those who observe its form and technique and in the case of a magazine, the observers are readers themselves.
We are completely open to suggestions for articles, features, etc., or any ideas on improving a magazine that devotes itself to the martial arts.
We also hope to develop the most extensive tournament and school calendar possible and for this we will need your cooperation. Announcements for tournaments and schools are free and we ask only that the be received three months in advance of their date when possible.
Complete coverage of tournaments after they take place is another goal and while such coverage is distinctly lacking from this premier issue, the problem has been rectified for successive editions.
However, we still need stringers for south and mi-west. If you are interested in submitting such coverage to us on a regular basis, please send a list of credentials and other qualifications.
As a magazine about martial arts, we have a lot to live up to. Practitioners of these arts are a,png the most demanding readers in the world when it comes to their favorite subject.
Meeting those demands will be our greatest joy.
In closing, I would like to personally that Mr. Aaron Banks who so freely gave of his time and patience in helping to make this issue of ORIENTAL FIGHTING ARTS a reality.
