20th Century Newspaper Articles

Postby Max C. » 25 May 2011 05:55

A couple of Newspaper articles showing martial arts techniques. As my interest is mainly cane you will see lots of it ;). (If you want to find some I suggest the Library of congress newspaper archives: Chronicling America (much better system), or the databank of genealogybank.com (paying but 1 free month)).
