Having studied with him a number of times (years ago), I have some first hand experience with the man --as do many-- and I can assure you he is an INCREDIBLY skilled and knowledgeable grappler. His knowledge of the submission game is just insane. There is no one like him alive.

Yes, he is a "character" and he does have have a lot of "pro-wrestler" in him, due to the fact that, well, he was a pro-wrestler --BUT-- he really is the "Dean of American grappling". He's a true pioneer who should be --and generally is-- respected by anyone who is a serious grappling exponent.

He's a legend in American grappling for good reason.

Maybe in other threads you could bash some other grappling frauds such as Carlos Gracie, Volk Han, Dan Gable or maybe Kimura.

He doesn't get hate. Here's your answer:

That video is very lame, sorry Dong. Whoever made it has poor grammar and even worse spelling.

Also, can't fault the man for saying he would bet on Chuck Norris vs an actor who also was good at martial arts.

His moves are not B.S., many are just very advanced technical moves. They don't "make sense" until you realize they are a counter to a counter to a counter.

I'll agree that what he teaches has sometimes not been explained well and taught out of context.

I used to learn some things and think, "this is crazy who would ever do this?" Then he would show When you use the move and it was like, "Whoa, that is awesome!"

If he has all these magical moves why don't we see them in MMA or even grappling matches?

I have no doubt he is legit, but the pro-wrestler is also strong in him. Also I heard he is kind of a sadistic b*stard, but a lot of those old time judoka are.

Dong Johnson - 

Gene Lebell is one of those bitter old man who worked as a sidekick for some of the biggest hollywood stars.  his bitter jealousy drove him to regurgitate putrid lies to put himself over the famous guys and make a name for himself.   I don't buy his bullshit for one second.


Haha... are you angry with Gene because he said a few things about your idol Bruce Lee?

I think others have outlined it pretty well..completely legit skills, but a kayfabe pro wrestler at heart....

Remember his involvement in Gokor's fight against the "world champion" "undefefeated in 200+ fights" "Japanese" Mr. Maeda?

It has always seemed that Gene is a promoter that doesn't let the facts get in the way of a good story...and as a kid, I went out and bought a Tonfa and my friend and I used to practice all of those cool moves from his book (his poor training partner in the books always looked like he was having the worst day of his life.)
