Gozo Shioda and JFK's Bodyguard

I read a bit about Gozo Shioda doing a demonstration in Tokyo for John F. Kennedy and after the demonstration JFK apparently thoguth that it was very impressive but wondered how Shioda would do against his big bodyguards.

Shioda invited the bodyguards one at a time onto the mat and ended up perfoming yonkajo onone of them. I'm wondering if anyone has any links that I could check out to read more about this event and/or links to videos of the event.

I believe the video that shows this demonstration was entitled "Gozo Shioda: Kamiwaza Denju" but I can not find it anywhere.

Thanks in advance,
