Learn Yubiwaza and become a black belt master of Improbable Claims
Color me skeptical of the 98 lb. woman who can immobilize a 200 lb. attacker with one little finger, sensei’s wife or not. Unless she jabs that finger up where the sun don’t shine. Then… (And the sensei must really be a martial arts master — HE HAS A PRETTY JAPANESE WIFE.)
The outlandish claims in this common 1960s promo definitely raise it above the standard martial arts comic book ads, and the use of the illustrations to depict the taming of “hoodlums” might put it up in the classic Charles Atlas “Hero of the Beach” stratosphere of self-improvement puffery. It’s a doozy.
BOYS! MEN! BRANDISH YOUR LETHAL FINGERS AND THEN GET A NUNCHUCK TO THE BACK OF YOUR SKULL!
