TigerMan Press Release
MEMPHIS, Tennessee -- The Lost Elvis Unit Ambulance has been found after all of these years and is in the TigerMan Museum.. It was not even known to exist but has been found along with the 911 Audio.. This Ambulance was used to transport Elvis Presley to the Hospital on that fateful day and was thought to be lost forever.. It has been confirmed by Bill Adelman the Curator of the Memphis Fire Department Museum..
The Tigerman Karate Dojo and Museum is a combination of Kang Rhee and Elvis Presley. The focus is the building: Elvis trained in martial arts from 1970-1974 in this very building. The Dojo floor has been recreated in the exact look as it did in the 1974 when Elvis received his 8th Degree Black Belt.
In addition, Elvis and Karate enthusiasts will love the "Tiger Den" which was inspired by The Jungle Room in Graceland. (Some may even notice some similarities- especially when they get to sit on the Witco brand furniture!) The Safari Room gives enthusiasts of Elvis an opportunity to experience what it would be like to sit in the real Jungle Room.
Karate and Elvis enthusiasts will be able to get on the Dojo floor with an experienced martial arts master, some of which trained personally with Kang Rhee and Elvis in the same building.
The Elvis Memorabilia, which highlights facts from his career, also includes the oldest Elvis Presley Signature that is not at Graceland.
Family members of Elvis Presley will also take part of running this facility in Memphis. Elvis Presley's first cousin, Billy Smith who also worked with Elvis as one of the "Memphis Mafia" along with his wife Jo will do the Ribbon Cutting on August 14th 2021! Joey Smith (Elvis' second cousin) is the General Manager of the operation. "I've come across a lot of businesses that focus on Elvis that don't pan out. This is different. This is going bring jobs to the community and this is an experience that doesn't have to end after a tour," says General Manager Joey Smith. "This is going to make a lot of people happy."
Danny Smith (Elvis' Second cousin) Is a Tour Guide. All four of these family members lived at Graceland in 1977..
This will be a fan friendly experience which (co-owner) Patrick Thompson empahasizes, "Will be very affordable." TIGERMAN DOJO AND MUSEUM
