    Very nice find. I find that most legitimate students of martial arts should read up on Bluming, Draeger and some of the others that were associated with them during their training periods in Japan.

    Prior to my involvement in Judo, I met a man named Wally Barber and he had trained with Draeger during his Japan years. He had the best attitude about Judo and JMA that I have ever seen. He told me that Draeger was the man that made it possible for westerners to train in Japan. Prior to Draeger, many foreigners were not taken seriously by some of the higher ups (particularly in the Kodokan). I don't know how accurate it is but I am more impressed with Draeger and his protege everytime I see something on them.

    Jon Bluming seems a very impressive fellow . He is going on an ever increasing list of people I need to research and read up on .


    Good find .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
