This song features "Kia" the karate bear in the intro. I've been an aficionado and practitioner of the martial arts for most of my adult life. This song had a Funk groove that needed a powerful start. My brother-in-law's mom had given me a karate bear that made a "Kia" sound when you squeezed it. The engineer at the studio was Dennis Bourke who was able to record the "Kia" sounds and add some reverb and delay for the desired effect. Needless to say, it provided the inspiration behind Tonester Bushido.
Give this song a listen and see if you can picture a scene in a Bruce Lee movie-Lol
