This is a shot in the dark question based on incomplete information. The famous strongman, George F. Jowett, emigrated from Yorkshire England to small town Ontario in 1910. While in the village of Inkerman, he apparently taught wrestling, judo and weightlifting above his blacksmiths shop. I doubt he learned his "judo" in rural Ontario. Was there any of the early judo/jiu jitsu instructors in the Yorkshire area were he might have picked up a smattering of techniques as a teenager?
