This picture shows the inside of Mack Petry's dojo in Abbeville, Louisiana.  A framed portrait of Ajarn Precha is shown at the top of the wall, and a portrait of Mack's hapkido master is shown at the bottom of the wall.  There are many trophies lined up alongside the bottom of the wall.  These trophies were earned from winning kata and sparring competitions at various martial arts tournaments.
