This lost vintage feature film, 'New Gladiators', was filmed in 1973 & 1974 and was the pet project of Elvis Presley and Ed Parker; finally found, restored and released. The cast of this feature film reads like a 'who's who' of the martial arts. You will see Team USA fight at Wembley Stadium in London, England, and then very next day, fight in Brussels against the very best fighters in Belgium. This is not a 'how-to' video - this entertaining film features a great soundtrack created by David Crosby and Graham Nash, and is narrated by karate legend, Chuck Sullivan. Written by

Did You Know?
Elvis gave another demonstration in the Tennessee Karate Institute on September 16th 1974. This demonstration was filmed, and only a few minutes of footage has been seen by the public. This footage was to be included in the recently discovered New Gladiators; but copyright issues prevented this from happening. Elvis also gave short demonstrations on stage, during his Las Vegas season in August/September 1974. See more
