    Important people in WMA

    So you have your Kano, Oyama, Huo Yuanjia, etc. for AMA.

    Who are the important figures in the development and tradition of WMA?

    This is tough because I can think of a good half-dozen to dozen boxers, off the top of my head I would throw in there: Sullivan, Johnson, Dempsey, Robinson, Clay/Ali for changing "the game" of boxing based on they way others had to fight them.

    Ha! [maniacal laughter] Now that you've changed your post, I'll pretend I was the first to chime in with: Johannes Liechtenauer, Sigmund Ringeck, Jud Ott, George Silver, Farmer Burns & E.W. Barton-Wright...again: [maniacal laughter]. Have a nice day.

    Damn you!

    I still have that placeholder.

    @Moenstah: I believe that even though John IS the best swordsman I've seen so far (can't say I've seen more than a few dozen up close, but he is quite awesome), he is just a reconstructor and interpreter, not a creator of a style. Thus, true credit goes to the original masters, which, *ahem*, another ARMA member has already posted.

    All? Not all... many remain to be seen.

    This will potentially be a really, really long list ... are we specifically looking for influential founders of new styles/systems?

    Well, the more influential, the better. Start at the top.
