Hotta Zukai 1952

A very interesting book from the Goodin University of Hawaii scans was the 1952 book Hotta Zukai, It appears to be a book teaching basic self derense. Perhaps from a Judo perspective for men and women.


More interesting from the Isshinryu perspective because the main fist position shown is the vertical fist with the thumb on top.


The book also shows women using an umbrella defensively.
