Film of Jiujitsu From 1912.

26 Mar

Believed to have been filmed in Paris, this is one of the earliest jiujitsu demonstrations captured on film. The second half demonstrates very effectively how jiujitsu could be employed by a gentleman under assault in the street. According to the Bartitsu Society, one of the demonstrators is Taro Miyake, who once defeated original bartitsu club instructor Yukio Tani in 1905. After this, Miyake and Tani joined forces to fight music hall challenge matches. E.W Barton Wright, founder of the original bartitsu club, is believed to be the first to introduce jiujitsu to the western world.
