Shibayama's Newaza: 39 cool mins of judo ground fighting
Because of a discussion in a different thread I googled for videos of old judo newaza and found this:
It is in black and white so I assume that it is quite old, but I have no idea of how old it is.
It is a very good video in my opinion, both because of the techniques (some basic, some less so) and because of the phothography (they have some shots from below the floor, probably using a glass floor, which is very cool).
Looking at this video, while they often use the legs to control the opponent, they clearly are not uing the "guard" as a strategy, as judo ground fighting is built on the idea of staying on top of the opponent, not controlling him from below [yes I'm a loyal underling of Captain Obvious].
I really liked this video and initially I tought to post it in the "advanced grappling" forum, but then I saw that that is mostly about BJJ, so I posted it here.
