Elwyn Hall Looks Back


A breathtaking montage of clips covering the distinguished career of this international fighter.

The programme also contains the clip in which Elwyn beats Frank Brennan a rare event. Elwyn Hall was always regarded as one of the Karate Union of Great Britain's hard men - sent out as the first team fighter. His solid aggressive fighting style was usually enough to cause the opposing team to feel a little shaken or unnerved. The paradox is that, outside of the competition arena, Elwyn is one of Shotokan's gentlemen and has always been a credit to the KUGB, as well as an international ambassador for the art. Elwyn also has the distinction of being one of the few men to beat Frank Brennan in kumite, at the 1990 KUGB Nationals.
