Old school Judo Ne Waza!

I really enjoy watching these old videos of the Judo masters from the bygone days; just shows you that the moves we practice today, have been around for generations.  See if any of these moves look familiar :)


Ne Waza demonstration by Chu Kawakami, 9th Dan, one of Jigoro Kano's original students...If Judo hadn't become an Olympic sport and hadn't gone through massive rule changes so that it would have a better appeal to the mass market, would we even have Brazilian Jiu Jitsu today?! It's incredible how rule changes in one martial art gave prominence to its cousin...
