Notable points are:

- Tada Sensei is 27 years old in this film.
- all of the techniques are executed in response to the attack (go no sen).
- the ukemi performed from the kotegaeshi throw are back falls, unlike the high falls that one would see in demonstrations today.
- Tada Sensei is partnered by the late Nobuyoshi Tamura.
- the film image is reversed.
