In Summer 2011 I was off to New York from London to compete at the United Nations Congress Ju Jitsu Championships. Set up for a win. Unfortunately my time in the Big Apple coincided exactly with the first Hurricane to hit New York in what seemed like forever. The competition was cancelled, a lot of training and preparation was wasted, but all was not lost as while there I fell in love - with analogue photography.
Beautifully captured photos that depict almost superhuman abilities. Polish photographer Tomasz Gudzowaty likes to travel the world in search of practitioners of various martial arts, acrobatics, and other non-mainstream sports. Photos after the jump.
