Cool Meeting Bill "SUPERFOOT" Wallace in a few hours...

Don't suppose any of you ****ers know who he is...?!

Undefeated World Kickboxing Champion from the 70's. Elvis Presleys personal bodyguard and the man who trained him up to Dan level in karate, Rat Pack bodyguard and the man who discovered John Belushi dead. Was the first ever commentator in UFC 1!! Starred in many Hollywood fight scenes with Bruce Lee, Chuck norris e.t.c...

Going to be awesome!!

Superfoot is a legend, not too many have heard of him here. If you could just get an answer to my questions that would be enough. But if he is signing stuff, I'll happily remimberse you + interest for a signature

Surprised you think people wouldn't know him on here he's a kickboxing icon, especially for anyone over 30.

His flexibility book was a bible for me in the 90s. In about 91-92 I was based in the States and a couple of time trained out of a boxing gym called Olympus boxing just below D.C. whilst gettiing ready for a fight in Richmond, VA. and the guy that trained us had helped train Bill in his early days. (Can't remeber his name, long time ago!)

Oh and you forgot to mention in his intro he did it all with basically one good leg, his left! amazing.

I meant due to his pre kickboxing injury, I wasn't having a dig at him.

Boy, how things have changed, "Mr Kicks" and "Superfoot"! Ilove the music...

I met Bill at a seminar in Scotland earlier this year, he opened our Dojo as well. I was lucky enough to interview him as well - fantastic guy!!

Amazing! His stretching routines are torture but really loosen you up and he is one funny guy! Had us all in stitches. You will kick for an hour solid at least and will probably get more out of that hour than you last year of training!

Let us know how it went later!

Is the fact I'm hanging out of my arse and had 2 hours sleep likely to be important?
