    WJJF Old Video

    This popped up on youtube and seems to date from late 1970s or early 1980s judging by those dodgy hairstyles. The video is of low resolution, which is consistent with the equipment of the time. What can't be denied is the vigour of application of technique.

    I rather think that this is a British Team (under the late Robert Clark) as the techniques are clearly drawn from the BJJA syllabus. Some are 4th kyu...which is a testament to how they should be performed.

    Anyway, enjoy - or slag it off but I'm impressed by it.

    Looked like they were getting slammed pretty damn hard, and it was far better than 99% of the MA demos out there. Particularly enjoyed the yanking of the hair.

    Yeah, I thought it was a quality touch. Almost glad I've lost my rug...except when the Sun is strong and burns my scalp.

    I've asked a few UK Trad JJ pals about any names but most can't quite make any out owing to the low res and the Bee Gees hairstyles (so one told me).

    OK, well, I now learned most of the names (from a very senior Trad JJ Dan Grade). They are: Charles Allmark, Bobby Ashworth, Kenny Blundell, Eric Marshall, Paul Geohagan, James Pape and John Steadman.

    All from the old BJJA and later the BJJA GB. Mr Geohagan amazes me now - well, he did the last time he taught at a seminar.

    Yes, contact was made and "Pain freezes the Brain". :-)

    I enjoyed that, especially the hair-pulling bit.

    All names I recognise, but no one I've met as yet. I hear a lot of good things about Paul Geohagan.

    Then you heard right. If I remember correctly, I think he was a junior Shodan in Judo at 15 years of age.

    He remains impressive and I've seen him give his Uke (4th Dan) a right shoeing at one seminar!

    Cheers

    I've never forgotten one strike he did to me in 2000. Good Lord.


    Great strike though and I've never forgotten it.

    Nor the effing pain....;-)
