“Ju-ji-tsu” at Aldershot (April, 1905)

Acrojitsu

This illustration by artist L. Daviel represents a jujitsu exhibition by former Bartitsu Club instructor Sadakazu Uyenishi at the Public Schools Gymnasium, Aldershot.

An alternative caption for the same drawing refers to Uyenishi as coming from “Seiboukan, Japan”, which was presumably a typographical error for Senboku District, Osaka, in that Uyenishi was a native of Osaka.
