When did Rigan Machado say he knew about this super mysterious kumite? I train under Machados and they've never said anything of the kind.

Seriously?! His claim to fame is just knowing Bruce Lee? So did Dillman, and you see where his thinking lies...
True, even more so in the early to mid 80s, also you would get USSR soldiers trying to sell you bits of uniform and badges on the train between Brunswick and Berlin.

It's the typical Frank Dux road show.
Thanks to Duck of Death for posting a great question which Frank of course, also avoided.
This part was my favorite:

More Dux goodness
I wanted to add some math I made to the Dux wiki page, but it's protected, and there doesn't appear to be any way I can see to contact an admin.
Frank claims defeating 56 opponents in a single tournament. Well, let's pretend for a second that it's not weird that there are no witnesses to this, no footage, etc, despite him claiming that he also got a bunch of records based on time and speed in that tournament (which would require someone with measuring equipment and logs).
Let's just do some math based on the "56 consecutive knockouts", shall we?
To fill a bracket, you need 2^n people, where n is the number of opponents you'll have to face. For example, to fill the brackets where you have to fight 2 people, you need 2^2 = 4 people. That's the upper bound. However, you don't have to fill them. You can have a full bracket for the number of opponents just below the amount plus 1 person (creating a bracket with just one person).
For example, to fight 3 people, you need to have at least (2^2) + 1 person (because without the + 1, you'd only have to fight 2 people) = 5 people, and at most 2^3 = 8 people.
Let's do the math on 56 opponents, shall we?
(2^55) + 1 = 3.602879702×10¹⁶ or 36 quadrillion people
(2^56) = 7.205759404×10¹⁶ or 72 quadrillion people.
The present population of the Earth is 7.4 billion people.
So you need from roughly 4.8 to 9.6 million times the population of the Earth.
Unless you want to fight people who just got knocked out over and over...because that would make you a real champ ;-)
So...millions of times the Earth's population, and zero witnesses. Sounds plausible.
(BTW, when posting this on Frank's Facebook page, he ignored it, and one of his minions called it "pretend mathematics".)
Is no one in charge of the wiki page anymore?
Hey phil I am trying to get you in contact with the correct peoples now.
