Let no one say the WAVES weren’t tough. Here, Naomi Sue Kleinberg demonstrates her proficiency in Jiu Jitsu by performing a hip throw against Marine Corps corporal Edmond Tofil. WAVES learned the art of judo and jiu jitsu as part of the training at the Hunter College boot camp in 1943.

The photograph comes from the National Archives.
