I'll take that back it is not an old book the techniques still work, I demonstrated the modern ju-jitsu verson on a few senior students and then performed a throw from the book where you are slightly behing, applying a neck hold/strangle and using your other hand to push his hips up as you pull him around, well said student landed like a cae crash and stayed there, hurt his back and went a nice colour of white! Just shows you even modern well practiced techniques where breakfalls are natural go out the window when an old twist is applied. Lesson for me dont assume your senior student will nail the landing!!!!!! This old stuff has key learning point that you should read and practice to feel the differences from modern self defence stuff. Love it, but I bet the mention of "Fairbairn" will have them running to leave the volunteer up front!!!!!!
