Kilindi Iyi, RIP
In April, I was saddened to learn that martial arts legend and one of the main proponents of the African fighting sciences in America, Kilindi Iyi, had passed due to Covid-19. I had planned to do a tribute to him then, but my own health problems prevented that (more on that at another time). I had conducted an extensive interview with him in July 2013 for No Holds Barred, so given all the circumstances, I am reposting a link to that original show.
You can play or download this show at here and here. If one link does not work, please try another.
A GoFundMe page was also set up to support his family, at https://www.gofundme.com/f/baba-kilindi.
