    I notice in this better quality pic that they are standing on tatami mat - so it must have been taken in somebody's dojo. But why in god's name was EP training in one of his jumpsuits? Probably he just stopped by, and then walked out onto the floor to do a technique or two, an let these fellows take a few pix.

    Well, that's solved. I see Ed Parker, LT, and the rest of the crew.

    Um....wouldn't that be 1971? I don't think Elvis wore the "Now" suit in 1972 or am I wrong?

    i have a caption from parker himself remembering that when E.P. went back to hawaii he went to meet the guy, and i wouldn't doubt the caption look at the aster linda was wearing this came from a local shopping spree in the islands.

    Elvis did wear the "Now" suit belt with two-piece stage pieces in 1972.

    re the photo

    i believe that this was taken in LA[NOT HAWAII AS PARKER STATED] , and it could be early 73, or late 72 as he suggested when he sold the photo's.
