The ad reads: “Never again be humiliated, afraid. Fearlessly defend yourself against any and all attackers. Defeat brawlers, karate, judo experts, even trained boxers! Black Belt Vern Schroeter has invented powerful easy-to-learn Unbeatable Self Defense system. Brand new book teaches you quickly with step-by-step drawings and text. . . Yes Vern! Rush me my book at once . . .”
My BJJ instructor did a post awhile back about these comic book ads. They give me a good laugh so when ever I see one I have to stop and read it. This is one of the best I’ve seen. I think Black Belt Vern Schroeter has created a self defense system around putting his nose in his arm pit from the picture. I did a quick Google on ol’ Vern and found some 1970’s Black Belt magazines that showed a “Vern Schroeter” participating in some competitions but from what I read he didn’t win anything. Maybe Vern’s “Unbeatable” system was in the rough stages then. What ever the case he never became a Chuck Norris or Gracie. I’m sure there is a good explanation as to his anonymity. I imagine it is something along the lines he has gone under cover or . . . comment on this post and tell us what you think Vern is doing now with his terrific new defenses.
