The Budo Zodiac

As today is my birthday…

Found this print ad ran in a 1981 issue of Black Belt magazine, a neato blend of Chinese zodiac and Japanese martial arts. The artist did his or her homework, too!

1969 — that makes both Tim and I mighty double-nunchaku wielding karate cocks! Think I’d prefer to be an honest and thrifty assassin rat instead…

Anyone out there have one of these shirts back in the day?

UPDATE: VN reader Dominic Thibault sent us this pic via Facebook. Appropriate to the current Chinese Lunar New Year and everything!

    Looking for an ad from an old black belt or Ninja magazine for the plans to a ninja cabin that was advertised.
