Count Dante. How it was back then.


Exposure to martial arts back in the '60's was through Wide World of Sport, Johnny Carson, Merv Griffen, or early Karate Magazines. All of us bought comic books and this ad appeared in all of them. The history of this ad, and Count Dante ( John Keehan) is a small, but, interesting part of American History. Years ago, over cups of java at Denny's after training sessions, I spoke with people who knew John Keehan. It was very interesting. Here are some websites about a film being made on this man.
