I recently ran across this black and white archival footage of Jigoro Kano's student, Kyuzo Mifune (Kodokan 10th Dan) accepting challenges from students. At 75, his mobility and dexterity are remarkable. I believe the video was probably taken at one of Kodokan's dojos, but I'm not sure. Maybe someone who reads this post might know?

Video posted by Judo Cape Town, thanks!
