Before Chris Costa strutted his stuff in Japan, in the now infamous #costagate2015, Chris Costa was already famous in Japan. Back when he was working with Travis Haley at Magpul Dynamics, a Japanese publication company immortalized Costa and Haley in a small Japanese Manga. For those who are not familiar with the art form, “Manga” is a form of comic in Japan. In an issue of ARMS Magazine, there was a small insert guide pamphlet detailing Magpul Dynamics’ techniques and instructors Chris Costa and Travis Haley.
The small manga was illustrated by Shin Ueda, a famous Manga artist who specializes in military illustrations.
Please excuse the poor quality images. I only had these old scans on hand.
The image below shows Chris Costa with a segmented circle around him. In Japanese Katakana it says “Workspace”. Clearly illustrating one of Costa’s teachings.
