    Yet another awesome thread on WMA, Kirk. Awesome pics, as usual. I have a question: is this Lancanshire Catch-As-Catch-Can?

    No, not specifically. These were culled from a number of sources. The photos were mostly from generic CaCC/Scientific Wrestling manuals. #1 is from Charles Atlas and #5 is from Farmer Burns, for example.

    The elbow and leg hold has a smooth transition into fireman's carry (kata guruma in Judo). I'll try it in tonght's class and write about it later.

    I've seen the move in Position 55 end in a shin to the groin:

    Yup. You may note that Farmer Burns (pic #5 in this montage) specifically says not to do it that way. :)

In other words, my arm is in the Americana, rather than the Kimura position like in the photograph.

    When you pull one of his arms across his body before you enter for the throw your opponent can't pancake you back into the crucifix position. See photo again.

    Pictures like these and the "Origins of grappling" thread cause me to wonder how many times people have rediscovered throwing and grappling techniques throughout history.
