RON TEUFEL and KEN SUEMITSU - Platinum Edition
RON TEUFEL was filmed on the Santa Monica beach, in California, back in July 1977. He was just out of his teens. It was a beautiful sunny day and Ron was in superb shape having recently competed in the AAU Mr. America. He stands 5'6" tall and weighs 190 lbs of solid muscle.
Ron was a Mr. USA and Teen Mr. America and one of the best built shorter men that I have ever worked with.
Most notable were his incredible abs, rock hard physique which appeared to be hewn out of granite and his excellent arms. Photos I took of Ron made the covers of Iron Man magazine in November 1977 and May 1979, and Muscular Development in December 1978. Ron sadly passed away in December 2002. Highlights of Ron's career included the following:
1975 TEEN AMERICA (AAU)
1975 TEEN MR. USA / 1ST SHORT CLASS (AAU)
1977 MR. AMERICA / 1ST SHORT CLASS (AAU)
1978 MR. CALIFORNIA (AAU)
1978 MR. USA OVERALL WINNER (AAU)
1979 MR. AMERICA / 1ST SHORT CLASS (AAU)
1980 IFBB MR. INTERNATIONAL / 2ND LIGHT HEAVY WEIGHTS
1981 IFBB WASHINGTON GRAND PRIX / 5TH PLACE
1982 IFBB NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS / 7TH PLACE
In this DVD Ron is 20 years old. He was Teenage Mr. America and had become Short Class Mr. America the day before filming took place. He also won the best abs title, and placed in every body part sub division of the contest.
This segment runs for 27mins.
KEN SUEMITSU is awesome! A combination of Padilla and Columbu with the grace and skill of Zane!! An incredible mass of muscle. The finest physique of his day in all of Asia. SUEMITSU was MR. JAPAN, MR. ASIA, MR. UNIVERSE SHORT CLASS and PROFESSIONAL MR. JAPAN. One of the leading Asian physiques of the 70’s, this was filmed when SUEMITSU was at the peak of his perfection.
He is still venerated in JAPAN today as one of the ALL-TIME greats of bodybuilding.
(Please note that Ken Suemitsu is also often referred to as Ken-Ichi Suemitsu or simply Ken Ichi Suemitsu.)
