    I think it's Sarah Mayer in action together with Hatta Ichiro (one of the leading exponents of the Japanese combination of Jūdō/freestyle-wrestling I wrote about in my last post), that we can see here (starting at 4:53) in an Austrian newsreel from 1935 (from "Oesterreichisches Filmmuseum"):

    Here is something about Hatta Ichiro from Joseph Svinth's "Journal of Combative Sports":

    And something about the acquaintanceship between Mayer and Hatta from a letter Sarah Mayer wrote to Gunji Koizumi in 1934, published at the same site:

    Dobó on air in Czechoslovakian Radio

    Post by Reinberger on Mon Jul 11, 2016 9:19 pm

    In 1935 and 1936, F.S. Dobó appeared several times on different Czechoslovakian radio stations:

    On Saturday, February 17th, 1935 Dobó, together with a certain Stein, had a discussion about Jiu-Jitsu at 14:50 on Radio Prague II.


    On Thursday, January 30th of 1936, at 18:30 Dobó held a lecture titled "Defend yourself (Jiu-Jitsu)" on Radio Brno.


    Then there was a radio broadcast on Sunday February 21st, 1936, at 18:40, were Dobó talked about "Something from 'Jiu-Jitsu' " on Radio Bratislava.

    Sources are different issues of the Viennese radio program guide "Radio Wien".

    Thank you, Petr!

    Did you notice, that on those pictures Dobo wears similar wrestling trousers - reinforced with leather at the knees - Higashi Katsukuma and others wore very often, 30 years earlier?

    Another thing, that did catch my eye, was the "snappish" way, Dobo wore his obi-knot. Josef Ebetshuber, a prominent Austrian JJ-teacher, who has started training in 1925, always wore his knot in a similar fashion (more to one side than in the center) the whole life, until his death in 1988. I think that is something, that was in vogue in Europe since the interwar period.
