    Here's an old comic book ad for Get Tough from the same time period:

    not quite an ad, but close enough.

    and here's an exerpt from Lightning Ju Jitsu on how to chop:

    The whole evolution of JJ etc over the last 100 years or so makes for some interesting reading.
    I guess I would have to agree with that statement.

    Ok, I have read it, it is fairly generic jiu jitsu from the '40's(although Askari's picture shows the later(1950's) reprint. Pops up regularly on eBay. I will assume your question is"Is this book worth what Matt Furey and his lacky are charging for a reprint?" The answer is no. Oddly enough the Atomic jiu jitsu that Furey and co. used to offer was in itself a reprint of a 1918 book called Practical Self Defense by William Jacomb.

    Just thought I'd necro this thread to let everyone know that Matt Furey is pimping this book--again--as a "secret" manual that shows ju jitsu secrets that will make you The Ultimate Fighter (that's right, a Scion and a dirtbike, baby!)

    Blood n Guts Ju-Jutsu

    Hi Don,
    Been debating on whether or not to tell you about a set
    of secret manuals on the art and science of kicking rumpus
    with Japanese Ju-Jutsu.

    Truth is, I've wanted to keep my study of these materials secret
    because I have been a wrestler for 35 years now, and giving credit
    to Ju-Jutsu is no easy task for me - and no doubt, some wrestlers
    are going to hate me for this.

    But the truth is the truth and I'm going to do in NOW - today - because
    these secret manuals really are sensational and there is a ton to learn
    in them, not only for wrestlers, martial artists and fighters - but MOST
    importantly, the average man or woman who wants to protect his life
    and the life of those whom he LOVES.

    Now, coming from me, a lifelong wrestler - as well as the King
    of Catch Wrestling (Grappling, 2003), I am making a major
    concension when I say that these manuals are incredible. But as
    you know, Matt Fure-cat Furey is the definitive straight-shooter and
    that ain't a gonna change.

    The wrestling vs. Ju-Jitsu feud is a long and never-ending
    one. Even Farmer Burns, whom I've introduced to you
    before, was part of the feud as far back as 1914.

    So, in saying these materials are 'must have' - I risk
    not only my reputation - but the 'Farmer's' as well.

    And I'm willing to do so because these training programs
    from pre-WWI and WWII are the REAL DEAL. They'll give
    you techniques that work to instantly stop any thug in his
    tracks.

    No sissy stuff. All blood n guts.

    Check it out NOW by going to http://www.mattfurey.com/lightning_ju-jitsu.html

    Best,

    Matt Furey

    P.S. Did you know that Prez Teddy Roosevelt practiced Ju-Jitsu in the
    White House. Well, the page I'm sending you to has information on him
    too - and it is absoulte MUST reading -http://www.mattfurey.com/lightning_ju-jitsu.html

    That was a good read (even though I only read the first part and not all of it). It was enough to make me LoL on myself.

    Matt Fury...you're the greatest...

    You got to give him credit for being good at marketing. He's like a homeless person giving finantial advice.
