    Good question, I don't follow the careers of MMA or NHB competitors, so I don't know, I am sure he does, its very popular in Japan, always has been.

    It would be cool to know, does he have a website?

    as regards ronin's original point of missing techniques from judo..... Im not sure, were a lot of techniques not disposed of by Kano as being irrelevant. I heard that he tried to keep it as much of as a battlefield art as possible.... That he tried to cut down the amount of time spent on the ground as he viewed this as impractical for the battlefield(but that he did this after some of his guys had gone over to america and taught the more ground based way--- which became bjj), so it would seem logical that he may have removed the striking aspects as well...
    I dont know-that is a hypothetsis entirely based on hearsay

    Its not so much that there are "missing" techniques, as much as, maybe the way the art is taught leaves out anything but what is sport relevant.

    definately---- the standard of groundwork of a lot of judoka is appalling, far too many clubs focus solely on contest stuff

    Ronin - Yoshida does have a website - http://www.hidehiko.jp but it is all in Japanese.

    There are some reasonable photos of his training and some of the worst T-shirts ever seen for sale.

    Justme - the serious top judo man is Kosei Inoue who is currently fighting at -100kg and is awesome. There are quite a few vids of him somewhere on judoinfo.com. The current top woman is still Ryoko Tamura at 48kg, having returned after injury, and her loss to that school girl. There are plenty of links for her vids on judoinfo.

    drunkenj - Randell is also a world champion, and notorious for his lack of technique and scrappy style.

    I like those t-shirts. They're funny as hell. I want the pink one, but it'd be like 50 bucks USD.

    Ronin: I don't think you're right about top judoka being also ranked in other arts. What top judoka also do other arts? A couple of Americans (david camarillo and rhadi fergusson) also do BJJ, but as far as top athletes go, I can't think of any who do other arts (besides Russians who also do Sambo, but that's so similar it's irrelevant). Oh, and Jason Morris from the US was apparently a very good collegiate wrestler. But who else?
