    Dude, I have countless G.I Joe figures. I've had them since I was a kid and I've been saving them to pass on to my kid(s) if I have any. My brother passed on his Star Wars (1970's) figures to me and they're worth a ****-ton now. Well, not a **** ton, but a good penny. I've got them stored away but I can easily dig them up for a thread like that.

    What I heard there is only one teacher of Glima in Sweden (Lars Magnar Enoksen).

    I don't think its very big in Norway or Denmark either. Not sure though.

    Even if this were all true..that Leo was appointed Soke over this ryu, it doesn't mean much. From what i've been told by several reputable sources, it was not uncommon for sokeship to be handed down to those who were not exactly mindblowing in the art, and the teaching work was left to those who held Menkyo Kaiden in the art. So basically, being Soke doesn't automatically mean you are the baddest of ass in your art and it was primarily an administrative position.

    Or diplomatic/leadership issues for example if the GI joes were a ninja clan duke would be the soke even though Snake Eyes would jack him like a tire changing robot because Snake Eyes has such horrible interpersonal skills.

    Never heard of a Glima teacher in Norway. But people have often heard about it as "the icelandic Judo thing" Iceland would be your best bet no matter what. Danes do a lot of quirky stuff though, so I wouldn't rule it out.

    Would be impossible to learn it though, since no one in the world has yet to understand the danish language. Not even the Danes themselves. This has caused quite a few problems over the years. But somehow they've gotten through it.

    That is very true. The title of SOKE was not always given to the person who was the best at the art but to the one most likely to keep the line going. Even Hatsumi admits he was not the best of those who trained with Takamatsu.

    I am not surprised Ashida is still defending Leo. :jerkit2yf But thankfully other are starting to see the light.
