Taky Kimura was taken to a Japanese internment camp the day before his high school graduation 67 years ago.

He finally received his diploma at Clallam Bay High School and was Clallam Bay’s salutatorian. He was one of Bruce Lee’s first kung fu students and became a close friend to the famous martial artist. ♦
