There’s a lot of history on a concrete floor that no longer exists.
When Charles Murray trained in Agena in 1971 he kept some memories that I’m sharing so we don’t forget.
The difference from the days when my original instructor, Tom Lewis, trained in Agena, a roof had been added to the dojo. The broken bottles were still atop the wall.
So here are a few photographs and video’s of Agena.

A big thank you to Charles Murray for sharing these memories with my students.
