Keep fooling yourselves,

Takeda, Ueshiba, Sagawa, Mochizuki.....all prided themselves on MMA. Were they alive..they would be more current than most everyone. They would pursue modern combatives...and still have IP/ aiki.
I think it is a case of armchair athletes who so easily dismiss these men; what they did and what they accomplished.

I am not considering the nonsense ueshiba did in his later years.
