interview with Nobby

This is an interview with my Father John Nobby Clarke 6th Dan (1927-1990) it was done by a local Canadian TV station in I believe 1987 which made him 60 not 62. MY Dad was a great mentor to me and what he says made a great deal of sense but he was prone to using poetic license when speaking.The reason I was not in the 1980 Olympics was because I was not selected. The competition record I can not confirm as I was very young at the time. He still had a great deal of knowledge and new ideas some which we take for granted today. It was nice to see the old man again and he looked healthy and this was a year before he his stroke and heart attack which left him an invalid
