Old School #6: In Which David Bowie Gets A Karate Lesson



Man, it just gets better and better!
Here is a clip from the Dinah Shore Show in 1975. I don't know who the instructor is, but you gotta love the 'Fro! Maybe somebody out there will recognize him. David Bowie clearly is a little shook up at being "manhandled" by somebody that isn't a Glam Rocker Heroin addict.

Dude that afro! Whoa!

Oh and never "knee to the groin" it's to easy for them to turn a little and dodge.

Always shin kick (like an unextended front kick) to the groin. Let their legs "guide you to the target". If they close their legs to trap your shin, easy just kick them again ;-)

For a second a thought it was Jim Kelly. However, it does not look like him.

Bob! What a snag, man! Jim Kelly before "Enter the Dragon!"
I don't think the guy with Bowie is Jim Kelly either, but great find. I wonder who the guy is he is fighting??
