    Percy Longhurst's "Jiu-Jitsu and Other Methods of Self Defense"

    [I humbly apologize for not posting this here sooner. If it makes you feel better I got whomped on pretty good at Judo last night. ;) ]

    I am proud to announce that, in conjunction with Dr. Milo Thurston and the Linacre School of Defense (www.sirwilliamhope.org), I have republished Jiu-Jitsu and Other Methods of Self Defense by Percy Longhurst.

    The PDF download is, as always, free.

    Blurb:
    An early promoter of Japanese “Jiu-Jitsu” in the first decade of the 20th Century in England, Percy Longhurst studied under both Yukio Tani and Sadakazu Uyenishi. He was familiar with, and possibly studied Bartitsu under Barton-Wright, and la Canne stick-fighting under Pierre Vigny.

    A prolific writer, and accomplished amateur athlete, Longhurst quickly turned his skills to Self Defense and the “new,” mysterious, and glamorous foreign martial art of Jiu-Jitsu.

    In 1906 he published the first edition of what was to become a celebrated and frequently reprinted manual: Jiu-Jitsu and Other Methods of Self Defense.

    Combining both western wrestling and self-defense methods with Japanese, Longhurst's manual was groundbreaking. Another innovation of this manual is a section specifically intended for ladies. This book is so dense with material, yet so easily understood and well put together, that it was revised and reprinted for decades, at least until the early 1950's, and at least 11 editions.

    This is one of the most important of the early western self defense manuals due not only to its heavy emphasis on Jiu-Jitsu but its combination with other western methods. It's sure to please western martial artist and early Jiu-Jitsu researchers alike.

    I happen to have stumbled across your site a day before you posted this. I'm very grateful for your work in preserving this information & will be thanking you for this with my business soon. Have you considered an ad here on Bullshido?

    What new (old) books are in the works? I think the guys at scientificwrestling.com will be interested in this stuff too. Thanks again & good luck.

    Glad you like. No rush. I do this as a hobby. I know the economy is in the crapper and it's hitting everybody so, in your own time.

    I post most of my repubs here and the mods don't give me any flack as long as I do my best to keep it in the appropriate forum. I figure that's fair.

    I just (as in tonight, minutes ago) finished A.J. Corbeseir's "Principles of Squad Instruction for the Broadsword."

    Next free repub I'm starting on is Sandow and "Strangler" Lewis' "Wrestling." Originals are kinda rare. I had to hunt for several years now before I managed to find an original for less than hundreds of dollars.

    The PDF will, as always, be free. Invite the good folks at ScientificWrestling, by all means. Happy to share.

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    Sandow & Strangler? Greatly appreciated. I just ordered a Kindle 2 to throw all my pdfs onto & will be bogged down on this old stuff for a while. Great stuff.
