    This is from an old article in cosmo mag.
    Its funny how they go back and forth in the interview.
    Another funny situation is when the judo man demonstates the crossarm lock(juji gatame) the wrestler dismisses that a strong man would not get put in such a hold.
    Pretty funny stuff.

    Interesting article. I like how both guys are saying ludicrously overblown things -- like how a judo guy would break a boxer's wrist 9 times out of 10 with a chop block, or that an armbar could not hurt a strong arm.

    Things have not changed so much on the Sherdog forums, 100 years later.

    Some funny stuff from both men:

    Sounds like TMA to me!

    Fortunatly Mr. Higashi replied:

    Although the rest of his quote is silly. Then there is the worst demo ever:

    Early American wrestlers were very embarassing...

    Obviously neither the grappling of the East nor the West was perfect.

    Or still is.

    There is much to be learned.

    this is not so much judo/jujutsu v wrestling but here is a link showing how very interested Teddy Roosevelt was in the styles back in the day. Also has pics of letters from big wigs thanking the instructor and stuff. Pretty neat historical info that might be of interest.
