1925 German book Comparing HEMA to Japanese Ju-jitsu

Came across this on my travels and thought it would be of interest to some here.    


The images come from a 1925 book called Vogt Raufkunst


Does anyone know of similar texts?

What kata do these movements remind you of?

Can we start making jokes about how Karate came from Germany? 

Personally I see postures that resemble Kururunfa and Seisan from Goju Ryu
