Saotome Sensei was quite outspoken on this subject. He stated that in the whole of the fifteen years that he was around O-Sensei he never saw any kind of "magic waza" as he referred to it. He was rather angry that these stories persisted in that he felt it took the focus away from the real achievement of the man who had reached an incredible level of skill.
