Itsuki Yamazaki Vs.Yukari Omori

This was a video posted on YouTube by xkingx2009 of Itsuki Yamazaki wrestling Yukari Omori at an old All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling event.
I say was because yes is yet ANOTHER video that YouTube has taken down. 

Itsuki Yamazaki made her wrestling debut in 1980, and was one half of the famous Jumping Bomb Angels.
Yukari Omori was also part of a famous tag-team, the "Dynamite Girls".

This match is pretty much pure Joshi Puroresu.
No gimmicks, no over the top promotion, just two Japanese women in swimsuits (a Speedo swimsuit in Yukari's case) going at it in the ring.

After the intro, the ref going over the rules, the opening bell and a pretty quick series of moves, they lock up in the center of the ring...

Itsuki side-steps and rolls Yukari into a leg lock...

Then she moves up and puts her knee in Yukari's back, adding more pressure to the leg lock...

Another flurry of moves and Yukari winds up trapped in Itsuki's body scissors...

Yukari manages to escape, almost gets Itsuki in a boston crab, but gets rolled over into an attempted pin...

But Yukari escapes by trapping Itsuki in a head scissors...
