2. Yanagi Ryuken

Yanagi Ryuken is a very powerful man indeed. He is able to use psychic powers to make his opponents pass out. He claims to be a master of the Kiai discipline.

Unfortunately the early UFCs never included a fighter from a psychic power discipline. If they had who knows if jiu-jitsu would have even caught on. After all, if Yanagi Ryuken was in UFC 1 he would have surely defeated Royce Gracie with his masterful technique.

Enter Iwakura Goh, an MMA fighter who wished to challenge Ryuken. Somehow, Ryuken not only accepted, but wagered $5000 he would win. He did not win. Ryuken did not win because his psychic powers are not actually real. His reality crushing moments are documented in the video below.

  1. I’m always blown away by this. I’ve got 20 years of martial arts training and do you know what I always say when I walk into a school? Treat me like a white belt. Seriously… any time you walk into a school where you want to learn, start from the bottom, and never assume you know a lot. A lot of these guys would have saved themselves some serious embarrassment by simply telling the truth and humbling themselves.

    And as for Kiai mastery… it’s a myth, guys. Anyone claiming they can control someone completely using only ‘energy’ is depending on the other person as an accomplice. It’s kinda ridiculous that people even claim it works, let alone pitting themselves against professional fighters to prove it.
