    Ed Parker's "International Karate Championships" was the largest tournament in the world in it's heyday. In it's biggest years the 3 day tournament drew 18,000 competitors.

    This clip is from the 3rd year (1966), black belt finals. In the lightweight division is; Carlos Bunda (Kajukenbo) vs. Joe "Black" Blaccara (Karazenpo). In the middleweight division is; Chuck Norris (Tang Soo Do) vs. Skipper Mullins (Tae Kwon Do). In the heavyweight division is Joe Lewis (Shorin Ryu) vs. Allen Steen (tae kwon do).
    All the stars of the 60's came to the Internationals.
