So, disregarding martial style, affiliation, country, governing body etc.,
Can anybody tell me what the first significant instance of an individual competitor from the WEST beating a competitor from the traditional home of the art (i.e. Japan or China),EAST, in an international fighting competition might be?
It should be either karate, judo, jui-jitsu or the similar, and should be of Western (European or American (creed/race not an issue)) origin. Is there any such stand-out victory which marks the coming of age of western fighters?
From what I can find is
Just wondering if there's any more
