    Maybe I read this wrong, but it sounds like one of his students found on the internet someone else making the statement that he was the founder of mixed martial arts, but that while he's fond of the praise he's like to make it clear that he wasn't in the business of mixing them and wanted to set that straight.

    That's what I took from it anyway. Whether or not the rest is BS...I just don't care enough to delve.

    There were many books published in the WWII era aout Judo and Jiu jitsu.
    Okay, check that **** off the list.

    I still haven't heard anything back from my multiple e-mails regarding who this guy trained with and such.

    But frankly, I don't really give much of a ****.
