About Yamashita Yasuhiro competitive years
Yamashita had a stocky build of 5 ft. 11 in. (180 cm) and weighed over 280 lbs (127 kg) during his competitive years. This mans greatest weapons were, o-soto gari combined with o-uchi gari combined with uchi mata made him a very dangerous opponent on a tatami. Add to this his great ne waza skills with strong holds and chokes that sometimes seams to come out of nowhere, and freakish speed that he executed his attacks, do not get me wrong i would like a chance to stand on opposite side on tatami with this man, but a few judokas would last long to count for anything.
