10 minutes of Randori starting at the 10 minute mark. Amazing. Blue namer please.

No, JBB, they are not missing a top star. Inoue was not on top when he retired. He was actually nowhere near it. His injuries were serious, repetitive and frequent. He was also unable to really adapt to the counters that were beginning to become prevalent in the division at the time.. though, i am very sure the horrific injuries he was constantly dealing with played a major role in that.

He was amazing while he was physically able to really go. He was as good as anybody ever could be, but for a shorter time than everybody in the world wanted.

A big part of his fame in Japan, and the world, is his charisma. that he somehow stayed humble and kind while always seeing the big picture of what Judo is. He was courageous, kind, young and even attractive...

Like I said the Japenese are missing another Inoue who dominated judo with his judo.
