REALLY REALLY Old School Gracie Video (BJJ documentary)

This 16mm film on the Brazillian Jiu Jitsu System must be at least 60 years old.

Helio, Carlos, and Carlson Gracie are all in this.
Carlos was 50 in the film, and damn, he was jacked.
Watch around 4:00 for a pretty impressive demonstration of a flying armbar; the second half of the video is all just basic technqiues.

Not bad quality for a restored film- very interesting watch.

It makes me think like I'm watching one of those old education films, like this one:
You can easily be protected from an atomic bomb by sitting under a wooden chair. Really.
