I think he was asking about your "documented tiffs with Triads and Yakuza" statement.

There must be something going on with reading comprehension lately...
Anyway, what you're providing isn't documented accounts but rather anecdotal reports. Documented accounts would have things like documentation: pictures, video, written accounts by eye witnesses, etc. Anecdotal reports would be a situation where someone told you a story themselves or someone else told you their account of it.
Also, from a Genbukan internal perspective, are you really sure writing about this sort of thing in a public forum is appropriate etiquette towards a Jun-Shihan?

Perhaps, perhaps not.

Really. Where? :eusa_doh:
"Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***
"The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."

"Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."

I remember doing an article search on Shihan, and came across one on Yahoo that mentioned it. I also heard about it in some dvds, and then people yadda yadda yadda.
That's all I know Good Sir!

This would be one of those times where providing links to said article would be a good thing.

Like I said, I did it once before. Go look it up on yahoo, type in James Wright Genbukan, see if a newspaper article pops up. It was years ago.
There is one, nothing about what we discussed though.

So who would win in a fight: James Wright or Chuck Norris? How about Jame Wright vs. Bill Brasky?
I looked at the posted links and even typed his name into Google. No mention of legendary conflicts with the Yakuza, or of defeating machete wielding mobs (:5sigh:).
