    ronin69,

    Do you know what Bluming Sensei is up to these days? Talk about a legend! I'd love to be able to train with him some day. I bet he could show some of the current MMA folks a thing or two.

    LOL oyama looked like a strong guy when he was young as well as when he was old too.
    "Training = pain." - I said that.

    Toshitsugu Takamatsu. Spent a decade in China and Korea during the 1920's in the service of various warlords, teaching martial arts, and was a president of the Sino-Ippon Martial Arts Federation. Won or found stalemate in 12 duels, 7 of which were mortal, and wrote that he'd estimated killing at least a hundred people in battle. I've read that in addition to the nine koryu ryuha he was soke of (most famously in his day Kukishinden ryu), he mastered something like 18 mainland systems. Earned the nickname Mongolian Tiger on his travels.


    He went through intensive strike conditioning. A newspaper reporter described him stripping bark off trees with an effortless pass of his hands, driving holes into the trunk with a five-fingertip strike, and breaking small rocks with a thrust from his pinky.


    Pictured with Akimoto Fumio, his senior student who died in a car accident, and Soke Masaaki Hatsumi.


    A couple pictures of him training Hatsumi. Even as a skeleton of a man, Hatsumi's students who briefly met the man described feeling cold fear of him, and from these pictures I don't doubt it.
