Dear everyone,
How are you doing? Hope all is ok with you.
My name's Tony and it's a pleasure to write you.
I wanted to ask to you a thing. From some years i'm trying to search info about a body builder called Elias Rodriguez.
On the internet i found a pic of him and this site http://musclememory.com/show.php?a=Rodriguez,+Elias .
He was involved in martial arts and self defense in the Bay Area.
I would be very happy if someone could tell me on him or find some pics on him.
On the Internet there are few info on him.
Hope you can help me and i would be very happy to know more on this person.
Take very good care.
Tony

Hi,
Thanks a lot for this big surprise. Appreciated a lot.
I have never heard the first image. The second one i saw it on the Internet.
This person was besides a bodybuilder also a martial artist too.  He was involved in martial arts in the 50s-60s in the Bay Area.
Sound like to be a great body builder and martial artists.
Take care.
Tony
