Not sure if this has already been posted.

In 1905, ju-jutsu pioneer Sadakazu Uyenishi and his students issued the "Textbook of Ju-jutsu". It was partly illustrated with "cinematographics" produced by the Gaumont Film Company, here re-animated for the first time in over 100 years.

The best book of the period.I have searched for the elusive sequel on ground work for the last 30 years.

Don't know.I read in the book that Raku planned to write a seperate book devoted to ground work and asked the book dealer i purchased it from if he had or could get the second volume,replied he believed he had sold a copy years before but hadn't seen another since.

Uyenishi never did a second book, unfortunately. Closest thing would be "The Game of Jiu Jitsu" By Yukio Tani and Taro Miyake.Exceptionally rare for a book of that period to show groundwork, The Game has a large section devoted to it.

 That was probabally what he was talking about, since I've never ran across a copy of another Uyenishi book.
