    Jujitsu film footage from 1912



    Very neat historical curiosity; this is some of the earliest film footage of jujitsu, probably shot in Paris in the year 1912. Features a formal technique demo by Takisaburo Tobari and Taro Miyake, followed by a spectacular self defense stunt fight.

    More details at http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/20...age-from-1912/ .

    I was rather pleased that they did some leg locks.

    Once you go bowler, you never go back.

    Extremely cool stuff - renewed my interests in bartitsu (always been curious about it) and/or BJJ.

    And the bowler - gotta get my wife to buy in on that one. Hmm.
