Clive Smith captures the true stories from some of Bristol’s Afrikan Caribbean legends of martial arts.
This podcast gives an insight into the journey of racism and discrimination that they all encountered whilst growing up in Bristol from the 1960s.
They tell their stories of why they started martial arts and the obstacles they all experienced. Many of these young men went on to become UK and world class martial arts champions, to set up their own businesses and to mentor the young people who follow them.
This production also gives homage to Henry Cornwall, Max Maximen, Trevor Johnson and Stanmore Allen for their contributions to the martial arts world before they all passed away.
This inspiring and informative podcast will educate and give you a true account of the many contributions these Afrikan Caribbean legends have made for Bristol and the world. It is introduced by Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees.
The podcast is by Clive Smith, RTS award-winning filmmaker. Commissioned by M Shed to mark Windrush Day and honour the Afrikan-Caribbean people who shape Bristol and contribute to the city’s success.
