Bruce Lee as Kato
Slashfilm.com is reporting that Diamond Select Toys have partnered with The Green Hornet Inc. and the family of Bruce Lee to produce a new line of Green Hornet and Kato collectibles. The Green Hornet TV show ran on ABC television for one season in 1966-67 and is remembered primarily as the launching pad for Lee's career as a martial arts star.

Diamond already carries several Lee collectibles and the new line, scheduled to ship in Spring 2022, features action figures, dioramas, mini-busts and a half-scale bust, approximately 10 inches high, that depicts Lee in his Kato mask and hat. The bust will have a suggested retail price of $175 and is a limited item with only 1000 being produced.

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.
