Neil Broom apparently has some Japanese martial art experience. And of course then we have freaks of nature like AB who is a superathlete.

I am not playing. After our Special Forces training, we did considerably well in our subsequent matches. I just don't know which ones, against whom or when or where.

It was a fad at that time. I think England was first to go on such training, then everyone started doing it. But quite a few players got injured or picked up niggles, and then everyone stopped.

Fad or not bro, I will take a superfit 200% fitness freak over any trained player in his technique and aggression any other day.
