Trust me Oyama would hit you in the face. Also in comparison to other Asians he was overweight. Also there is a reason that rikishi are generally hired has doormen and bodyguards. They also pull a lot of tail.______

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Gah, stop with the facts evergrey and Gezere. Facts are for MABS and the training fora. This is YMAS.
Anyway there's American Pig on a Couch fat, and there's Fedor fat. I've read (citation needed) that Roman Gladiators would intentionally get a gut as it added protection to their mid-section. Personal anecdote; I bicycled 100 miles from Selma NC to Wilmington with an overweight guy and he kicked my ass every pedal stroke. I get it.
Now, back to YMAS - Tubby guys (strong men, rikishi) are considered sexy & desirable in Japan?"Never trust a quote you read on the internet" - Abraham Lincoln

Wait, so all those fat white guys who fantasize about living in Japan really would have it made if they moved to Japan? If so, the Bujinkan makes far more sense to me now.

Were you thinking of something like this article? http://www.archaeology.org/0811/abst...gladiator.htmlIt seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.
