Eager to learn the art of overcoming an assailant, more than 200 students attended an exhibition of jiu jitsu presented by Takizo Matsumoto 2GB in the Indoor Athletic Building yesterday afternoon.
As a result of the enthusiastic turnout, Norman W. Fradd, Assistant Director of Physical Education, said that he would consult with William J. Bingham, Director, about the possibility of including the sport in the university athletic curriculum.
Shows Vital Holds
Matsumote, who is one of the few wearers of the black judo belt in the United States, demonstrated several of the basis holds that would be taught in the classes on his assistants, John Hartash 1GB and Robert Greenbore 2GB.
If new classes are formed, they will be strictly confined to non-injurious holds, according to Fradd. Also the Japanese explained that the ethics of his profession forbade instruction in producing paralysis by pressing the nerve centers.
Emphasizing that the judo art is one of defense, Matsumoto showed the hand holds used by G-men to disarm criminals.
