Jon Bluming Documentary
Here's a great documentary on Kancho Jon Bluming where he gives his view on martial arts and his experiences. Enjoy!

Reason: Mispelt his name!
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.
