Richard Smith began training in Jiu-Jitsu in high school in the 1950s to be able to better defend himself. Since then, he's been dedicated to martial arts, and was recently promoted to 10th degree black belt in Shorin Ryu Karate.
"My dad was in sales so I moved through different schools," Smith, 76, said. "In those days, they'd beat you up. I thought I better do something."
