UFC Japan Video: Georges St. Pierre Gets Attacked By A Mob Of Kids With Samurai Foam Swords

Georges St. Pierre was in attendance at the Saitama Super Arena to watch Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson, and the stacked card that was UFC 144. Before the event though, the UFC Welterweight Champion toured around Japan visiting several locations along with a kyokushin karate gym, and a kindergarten school.

Here's what happens when GSP joins in on a Kendo class:

While in Tokyo, Japan for this Saturday's UFC 144 super-card, martial arts aficionado Georges St-Pierre took the opportunity to train in the birthplace of hand-to-hand combat.

St. Pierre is currently recovering from knee surgery and is constantly doing therapy, recently saying that he's "ahead of schedule":

I feel very good. I'm ahead of schedule. I feel sometimes I want to do a little bit more but even though I feel good my graft is not fused properly, 100-percent. I need to remain calm. The danger with a lot of athletes is to push through the pain and try to go to fast. If I do so, it might loosen up the graft and I might have to start the old process again and I don't want to do that.
