Larry Hartsell (+ Pete Hetrick)

The late great Larry Hartsell teaching a seminar in the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Hall in Cambridge (UK) in the early 90's. He was assisted by Pete Hetrick, and the seminar was hosted by Ollie Batts from Cambridge Academy of Martial Arts®

What a lot of modern-day martial artists fail to realise is that when Larry Hartsell first came to Cambridge, there was no UFC or MMA - in the present day term. People like Larry Hartsell were the ones who were actively involved in promoting cross-training as the way forward in the martial/fighting arts.

SteFan JKD/Sweden; Larry Hartsell archives

Now 20 years later it it pretty obvious that a lot has happened since linda lee started the jun Fan JKD Nucleous back in 1996.
