Published by Chris Gordon
George Bothner, was considered alternately the "most Scientific" and best "defensive wrestler" of his day.
Bothner, began his wrestling career at 13 years old and, as a "youth" won the amateur 125 lb. title and then, 2 hours later, won the 158 lb. title. His amateur career, lasting 7 years, was undefeated.
His professional career began in 1896 under Hugh Leonard. In 1899 he wonn the Lightweight Championship, and twice defended the title. During this time he fought exhibitions matches with greats of the time and was a pioneer in the wildly popular "Wrestling versus Jiu Jitsu" matches. He won against Katsukuma Higashi in 1905 and 9 years later, at the age of 48, he defended the honor of Catch wrestling against Tarro Miyake, retiring afterward.
This comprehensive manual is lavished with more than 60 instructional photographs. This is truly a "must have" for the Catch-as-Catch-Can practitioner and a valuable resource for grapplers, and martial historians.
