THE ARM OF A SAMPLE STUDENT OF "JIU-JITSU."

The Japanese do not care for great lumps of muscle on the upper arms. The little lump just over the bend of the elbow is regarded by the Japanese as being the most important of all. A splendid type of the arm produced by jiu-jitsu. The man stands 5 feet 1 inch, weighs 120 pounds.
