Self Defense Better Than Jiu Jitsu – Strength Magazine – June, 1926

It is about twenty years since the world was first told about the marvelous methods that the Japanese had of defending themselves. The new art was described as a mysterious knowledge of anatomy, only known to a select following of the Japanese higher class. There is no doubt that the yellow-skinned exponents of this new style of self-defense demonstrated their knowledge with efficiency when they invaded our shores; but, they never succeeded in making their Jiu Jitsu a popular sport with the white man.
