    Kikkoman is like venereal disease, everybody knows where he came from, but nobody wants to take credit.

    Ok. I will remove Eddie Bravo from the list of historical figures.

    But I still say Eddie Bravo would kick Kano's ass.

    Residual urge to laugh has faded, and now only tears remain.

    I think that almost all of the current crop of elite grapplers could take out Kano, but that doesn't mean they belong on the trunk of the evolution tree.

    If you're going to include Eddie Bravo, why not throw everyone with a new variation on guard and a book in? If Bravo's students are consistently cleaning house at Abu Dhabi, the Mundials, MMA, etc. 5-10 years from now, he might get his day in the sun. Christ, he just got his black belt in 2003 and suddenly he's some kind of mythical figure.

    Not a BJJ guy, but I have a great deal of admiration for: Minoru Mochizuki who's 8th dan in Judo was directly from Jigoro Kano.
    I've rolled with a man who was a direct student of Mochizuki for about 7 years, and can attest to his ability on the mat. Very impressive. Oh yeah, and he knew what a triangle choke was long before any of us did, just called it Sangaku Jime.

    Mochizuki, was thinking about cross-training for effectiveness even before WWII.

    Most people are unfamiliar with judo so they don't understand the magnitude of Kikkoman's stupidity.

    Therefore, he will excape unscathed.

    Trolling the Martial Arts History Project is poor form Kikkoman.
