More Comic Book/Combat Judo by Dr. Barney Cosneck

In a previous post, I discussed Bernard J. Cosneck's role in WWII combatives, his book American Combat Judo and his short-lived foray into the world of comics.

Today, I want to draw your attention to a page from American Combat Judo that illustrates the "Rear Pull-Down". It appears to have come from Cosneck's career as a college wrestler.

As such, it may have limited application as a combative technique for taking down a sentry, but it would definitely not fit into any but the most fantastic of self defense scenarios.

This same technique appeared in the Judo Joe Comics, and you can compare by going to the Comic Book Self Defense page and scrolling down until you come to "Rear Pull-Down".
