Storyline

In a gym, a girl is pulling some pulleys, to gain arm strength, while three men and three girls watch a judo demonstration in the middle of the room. A girl wearing a sweater and shorts applies a succession of holds to a young man in a sleeveless undershirt and a black trunks: over the shoulder projection, arm lock, over the hip projection, sideways headlock and knee to the face, sacrifice fall followed by school-girl pin, kidney punching followed by a groin kick, sideways kick to the knee and arm-lock, eye-gouge and kick to the ribs, attack to both legs with arms and legs, arm-lock and tripping followed by a leg blow to the throat, disarming a knife attack from above, and then an up-thrust with the knife, disarming a revolver menace from the back, usage of a leather belt to strangle and throw an attacker, usage of hair holds for control and throw of the opponent, and KO punching. The man simulates different forms of attack and stands gamely every time - except the last. Written by Artemis-9

Cheerful Martial Arts Documentary

It's quick, breezy, and cheerful, with a sound track you can hum along to!

Mary Parker and Lou Leonard demonstrate some tough judo moves, at about half-speed, carefully choreographed, carefully avoiding setting off the censors with any no-no kicks to the groin -- although the idea is there. Obviously a lot of planning went into their work-out, and if they had performed it at full-speed and with full force, i have no doubt that Mr. Leonard would have suffered some serous damage.

I liked every part of this cute film. It delivers exactly what it promises. One cannot ask for anything more from a movie. I watched it three times in a row. That's more times than i watched Das Boot in a row, but fewer times than i watched Casablanca in a row, so a rating of "10" seems well deserved.
