    Awesome comic book MA ads 1950's - 1980's

    Didn't really know what forum to put these in, but I thought they were worth checking out.

    In the back of comic books since time immortal, advertisers have pushed their crappy wares on impressionable young men, and occasionally women, in the hopes that these esteem-stunted individuals would fall for their BS - advertisers using martial art to scam kids were no exception.

    Here's a collection of old martial arts advertisements from the 1950's - 1980's that would have made an excellent MABS investigation, had the interwebs existed back then.

        I am thinking of putting one of those ads as a design on a t-shirt.

            up one of these comic books?

                Ah yes, I remember Dan - he came on Bullshido a bit over two years ago looking for comic ads (first thread and second thread). Looks like he had some success.

                I've got a bunch of old ads in my gallery on here, generally following this kind of format:

                BJJ Beginner FAQ, Artemis BJJ, GrappleThon.org (BJJ for Charity)

                  Oh, cool - I tried searching for threads about this collection prior to posting, but seems like I missed those. Some seriously funny stuff, though - my favorite is the concept of MA "home study."

                    These ads always give me a good laugh whenever I see them in old comic books. I also happen to own a Ketsugo book, and I have a reprint of a Charles Atlas boxing book.
