    "In January of 1992, dishearten of the Bujinkan politics, ranking and students' dishonesty, Mr. Severe began his personal warrior quest. During his warrior quest he researched Shooto Wrestling, Brazilian Judo, Catch As Catch Can Wrestling and Russian martial arts of combat. "

    Brazillian Judo? Russian martial arts of combat? Huh?

    Well, his Taijutsu is authentic...which puts him head and shoulders above Ashida Kim and Sheng Lung Yi. As for the other training...at least it shows that he's willing to branch out and try new things.

    I have a feeling that he's good to go, and that he's probably pretty solid and strong regardless of how "Puffy" he looks.

    He dropped out of the Bujinkan for obvious reasons. He's puffy, but the fucker can throw down for sure.

    Ralph is a bit eccentric, but he's a good fighter from what I hear and definitely not scared to throw down.

    Russian marial art of combat = Sambo, I believe. Ceck out the early UFCs with Dan Severn. He studied Sambo.

    I don't think Severn ever studied sambo actually.

    I just find the wording "Russian martial arts of combat" pretty funny. Like saying you study a fight-related Javanese fighting art.....of fighting. The "Brazillian Judo" is also funny, since he probably means BJJ.

    Well As Asia saids BJJ = Basically Just Judo. BJJ is just Judo will different rules that favor ne-waza to nage-waza. So calling it Brazilian Judo is acceptable.

    I think he means Systema, not Sambo.
