Suffragette jiu jitsu on The One Show

Here’s an excerpt from The One Show, with me getting flatted by my old pal and fellow jiu jitsu instructor Mary Petty — I’m the bad cop. There are two nice throws at the end, so it’s worth wading through the beard commentary.

Jiu Jitsu on The One Show

one showCan a slight suffragette make light work of a larger attacker?  I’m in a martial arts demo with jiu jitsu black belt Mary Petty on The One Show tonight, from 7 pm.

The focus is Edith Garrud, a very small jiu jitsu instructor, who trained a team of women who looked after the suffragettes.  I’m an Edwardian policeman (cannon fodder) and Mary’s playing the role of Edith Garrud.  Hope it turned out well in the edit.  She kicked my head in.  Possible live demo as well tonight — just need to find a presentable gi without blood on it.
