Such greats as Mike Foster, Chuck Norris, Fred Wren, Glenn Keeney, James Hawkes, and Jim Kelly just to name a few.

About the International Fighting Arts Association/Black Dragon Fighting Society

"The American Branch of the ancient and honorable Black Dragon Fighting Society was founded by the late Count Juan Raphael Dante and opened to public membership in 1968."

"According to legend the death touch/Tibetan Iron Palm strike was allegedly administered to Keehan over his tendency to associate with well known western organized crime figures, bringing dishonor to his clan. Nonetheless, with his death a young protégé Frank Dux competed in Keehan’s place in the coveted and legendary Kokuryukai, Black Dragon Society Kumite events. The event which forms the basis of the 1988 classic film based on true events in the life of Frank Dux, Bloodsport."
