  • Originally published on the Bartitsu.org site on Tuesday, 27th July 2010

A British Pathe newsreel from 1937, including a brief shot (0:25-27) that may be the only surviving film footage of the then 56 year old former Bartitsu Club instructor Yukio Tani. Tani suffered a stroke in this same year, but continued to coach from the sidelines of the Budokwai until his death on January 24, 1950.
