Martial Arts Wish: Resurrect Any Martial Artist



I own a genie.

No, really, I do!

His name is Jeffrey. Jeffrey the Genie.  Genies actually have specialties, and Jeffrey's is related to the martial arts.  Darn good thing I ran across Jeffrey the Martial Arts Genie, versus one that specializes in theremin playing or stamp collecting or whatever, right?

I'm making Jeffrey available to the Stick Chick Blog readers every once in a while to grant a single wish.  Today is one of those occasions.

Your wish is your answer to this question:

If you could bring any dead martial artist back to life, in their prime, for 24 hours, to train with you, who would it be?

It could be someone famous, or someone who is special to you.  It can be a teacher, a training partner, or even a student.  It can be anyone.

Let me know who you want to bring back to life in the comments, and WHY you choose them to be wish-resurrected.

I'll give you my answer to this question:

I choose Remy Presas, the founder of Modern Arnis. I'm a second-generation Modern Arnis player and I would love to have the wonderful experience so many in the first generation had with him.  There's also a list of questions a mile long about the style I'd love to ask him.

So who are you bringing back to life for 24 hours?  Let us know in the comments!
