My dad always mentions his old friend, Gary Alexander, when we talk about martial arts.  He says he was an absolutely nasty kickboxer.  Im too young to know about him.  Does anyone know him?

Gary Alexander was/is an Ishhin Ryu practioner from New Jersey. He was a mainstay in east coast events for years. Used to be in the old Official Karate magazine all the time.
