Bruce Lee first sought out my teacher Professor Sig Kufferath in order to learn Jujitsu. Kufferath was the successor to Henry S. Okazaki, who created the worlds first Mixed Martial Art, Danzan Ryu Jujitsu in Hawaii,via Japan,in the 1920s. Professor Kufferath and his Chief Instructor, Professor Richard Bunch, were both my teachers. So, B.J. Penn was right in stating that Professor Okazaki was “The worlds first Mixed Martial Artist” and Bruce Lee is not the “father of Mixed Martial Arts.”
