I was bummed to hear about his passing. His roles in Enter the Dragon and Black Belt Jones were a source of inspiration for me.

He was a quality karateka, and just plain cool.

Aw damn, that sucks... I watched a video of him about a year or two ago in an interview. He aged a lot, but looked healthy. RIP. Enter the Dragon was my favourite film as a child.

FixedPartialArts - I thought you were talking about the American football player. That's a relief.

Your handle is pretty cool, but your comment isn't.

I didn't mean anything by it. That was my genuine reaction at the time I clicked on this thread. Jim Kelly the footballer is a lot younger, and I know of him, he was healthy last time I heard, and seems like a pretty good dude. This guy is quite a bit older, and I've never heard of him. If I felt bad every time a 67-year old who I didn't know anything about, died, I'd be pretty depressed. But 67 years old is too young probably too, depending upon what kind of health he was in. It's too bad.

Fair enough. I posted this, surprised that the UG wasn't already lit up with his remembrance. I guess I'm realizing Jim Kelly wasn't as much of a celebrity to the rest of the world as he was to me.
