Yoshihiro Uchida arrived on San Jose State College’s campus fresh off his parents’ strawberry and lettuce farm during the fall of 1940. As a student assistant to Emilio “Mel” Bruno, who coached the SJSC Police School Cadets in judo, Uchida would begin his whirlwind courtship with the martial art form. Bruno’s departure from SJSC to the California Department of Corrections later that semester provided a key opportunity upon which Uchida, who will be 96 on April 1, would pounce. With Bruno’s departure, Uchida was given an opportunity to coach the Spartan cadets. But upon America’s entrance into World War II, Uchida joined the Army. There he and his Japanese peers—just as Black Americans—served in segregated units. Initially, his unit served KP (Kitchen Patrol) duty, and cleaned military bases throughout the Midwest. But once a superior officer spotted Uchida’s impressive academic record, he was transferred to a military hospital. There, he worked in the lab, and was provided tutoring by military doctors.
Constance Miller a Seattle resident and author of the brain injury survival manual that was featured on Super Bowl XXXIV. Her book is entitled FROM THE ASHES, and she asks: “What is the future of football now that it has been conclusively linked to the severe, debilitating brain disease known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE. What are the moral and legal implications of football in the age of concussion? Recent studies have shown that developing brains of young children are especially susceptible to damage from brain injuries caused by concussions.”
Holder of a master’s degree in psychology, Miller is the managing director of the Seattle-based Brain Injury Resource Center, a non-profit clearinghouse operated by brain-injury activists since 1985. Providing a treasure-trove of information on the subject, the Center is manned by consultants that include neuropsychologists, lawyers and individuals suffering from TBI.
In the mid-1980s she authored the book “From the Ashes” -- a highly acclaimed work on head trauma and its long-term effects.
Miller and “From the Ashes” were the subject of a five-minute video segment on concussion that aired during the pre-game show of the ABC Television Network’s telecast of Super Bowl XXXIV between Tennessee and St. Louis.
She goes on to say “As the survivor of my own 1982 life-altering concussion, I am here to help other concussion survivors.
