On January 24, 2020, Steve "Nasty" Anderson, for decades an international leader in the martial arts community, passed away in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In honor of all the contributions and accomplishments made by this Black Belt Hall of Famer, we are posting this 2002 interview so he is remembered by posterity.

Steve Anderson is an icon in the sport-karate universe. The native of Toledo, Ohio, spent time in various parts of the country before settling in Southern California in 1973, where he rose to the top of the circuit and acquired the nickname "Nasty." The Black Belt Hall of Famer now operates two schools in Ontario, Canada, and oversees the instruction of some 500 students. We caught up with him for the purposes of this interview. We're confident you will find his recollections as enlightening and entertaining as we did.
