And to be the first non-asian to run an Aikido dojo in Japan must be tough.
I imagine like going Thailand to teach them Muay Thai, and thats like 30yrs ago, when the world isnt as open up.
who will emerge the victor depends more on the fighter/practitioner than the school of martial art. But having said that, having a "rounded" martial arts education also helps. IMHO, a good rounded fighter needs to be competent in the external arts like punching (e.g. boxing), kicking(TKD), locking & throwing (e.g jujitsu), blocking, counter-attacking (e.g. how to reverse a lock/throw), and also using weapons. ALso he would need to be competent in the inner-kungfu (e.g.Taichi) and using inner-strength.
A thin weak looking guy turns up, not claiming to be from any famous martial arts academy like Shaolin, Ermei, Wutang, etc..
He takes on the five Muay Thai guys and is thoroughly bashed up. He only manages to touch them weakly a few times each.
The MT guys win and celebrate their victory.
They hold press conferences and declare theirs is the best.
Then.. 10 days after the bout, they all die suddenly.
Western doctors cannot figure out how.
It is not poisoning.
There is no visible physical injury.
The thin weak looking guy cannot be found.
Returned to the mountainous forests.

The more powerful man is the weak skinny guy who
can put a light touch on the vital point of the human
body. This is another area of kungfu not known to
others as often as TKD, Boxing, etc.
Another area is the powerful force (internal power) that
can push you away without even touching you.
If you see, there is no strongest martial arts in the world but strongest fighter.
Different Martial Arts suit different people. Make it short and sweet, the person is the weapon, the martial art is only an enhancement.
