    Jūjutsu/Jūdō in a Japanese dōjō documented in 1925

    For everybody who doesn't know or haven't seen already:

    In 1925, the German "Ufa" produced the movie "Wege zu Kraft und Schoenheit (Ways to Strength and Beauty), documenting the increasing interest in "Koerperkultur" (physical culture) and "Lebensreform" (life reform) during that period of time. Director was Wilhelm Prager, and the film includes some five minutes about jujutsu/jūdō, mostly shot in a Japanese dōjō, as well as a lot of slow-motion takes. Some times those are telling, as, for example, one can clearly see at 1:03:10, how the attack isn't really executed, but the arm is stopped in midair, before tori even touches it to perform seoi nage. However, the sequence is an interesting document of practice in a Japanese dōjō in the mid-1920's.
