    There were several foreign Judoka who lived and trained in Japan in the 60s and 70s. From discussions with Finnish old timers many of them did "foreigners" in Japanese films. They mentioned Toho and Toei studios. Highest Finnish dan holder Jorma Kivinen is known to have posed as Nazi officer in the early 70s.
    Has anybody any information of e.g. Geesink or Bluming doing parts? Or was that later trend.
