This was right about the time that the true insanity was setting in.

These were tough to date - the Karate web site says 1971, which just isn't right - and they do now look more to me like later than February 1973, so as a compromise I'll change the link to say mid 1973 8)

bripet56 and I agree this series of photos with Ed Parker, John Conway and knife maker Gil Hibben were taken in early April 1973, at the time Ed Parker gave Elvis his 6th degree black belt (April 2).

The belt Elvis is wearing is indeed 6th degree black:

Looks like you've posted this on several Elvis websites. If you have a photo is sell, you should try eBay, and you will have to show a sample of it or no one will make a bid.

I also suspect your photo is from Las Vegas or Palm Springs in the summer of 1974, like this one:
