Phoenix Fitness dojo, circa 1998

left-to-right in the image are: Svetlana Oshkai, Misha Grey, Craig Constantine, Sensei Wirth, Sempai Bill Ross, Peter Oshkai, and Mike Allen.

Phoenix Fitness was located on American Parkway in Allentown. This is the dojo where I started… I believe I remember this picture being taken. I’m certain Sempai Mesut Pervizpour is behind the camera. If you’ve heard me tell the “suwari waza months” story… this is that dojo.
