de braco -
i have it somewhere in the stacks, along with an inside karate from 89' that had rorion and rickson on the cover, i think 87' was their first cover story though. By 90' rorion was riding high and making a killing off the original GIA vhs, it was $59.95 in 88', adjusted for inflation that's $130 today, that was a little hard to turn loose of. I believe 88' is also when chuck norris and rorion had their falling out over the infamous seminar for chucks' UFAF where chuck only though he was paying for rorion but rorion ended up bringing rolker, relson, renzo ,rillion, royce, rickson, royler and carlos machado
I think you are right. It must've been a martial arts magazine in the mid-1980s that I first read about them.I bought the In Action VHS tapes and still have them somewhere! I'd love to see the magazine covers of those early ones. I probably had them.
