Judo, or the Way of Gentleness, an ideal form of physical exercise and a reliable system, of self-defense, was specially created from traditional Japanese martial arts. This book by the creator of Kodokan judo is uniquely comprehensive and the most authoritative guide to this martial art ever published. Over a hundred years ago Jigoro Kano mastered swordsmanship and hand-to-hand combat. Failing to discover any underlying principle, he set about designing a new martial art to reflect the concept of maximum efficiency in the use of physical and mental energy. Today, the concepts and techniques of judo taught at the Kodokan are the ones originally devised by their creator and collected together in this book. Covering everything from the fundamental techniques to prearranged formal exercises for both men and women, the book offers detailed explanations of how techniques are combined in two types of practice: randori (free practice) and kata (the practice of forms). In addition to a discussion of traditional methods of resuscitation, the book concludes with a useful appendix of information on the founder and the Kodokan International Judo Center, and a glossary of judo terminology. Fully illustrated throughout, Kodokan Judo will help students and instructors everywhere to discover the principles, techniques, and spirit of this popular martial art.

In 1882, Jigoro Kana (1860-1938) founded Kodokan Judo at Eishoji Temple in Tokyo. It was the culmination of a lifelong devotion to the jujutsu of the past, which he reorganized while at the same time taking great care to retain its classical traditions. As Kano explains in Kokokan Judo, as a youth he studied jujutsu, a martial art practiced in Japan since feudal times, which involved throwing, hitting, kicking, stabbing, slashing, choking, bending and twisting limbs - and the defenses against these attacks. After years of studying many different jujutsu techniques, he realized that although many different techniques were taught, there was no one core value holding them together. After thorough consideration, Kano was able to identify an all-pervasive principle: to make the most efficient use of mental and physical energy. He then looked at the different techniques again, and chose only those in which this principle was correctly applied. This was judo. "Ju" means gentleness or giving way. "Do" means principle or way. Judo, therefore, is the Way of gentleness, which implies that first giving way leads to ultimate victory. The Kodokan is literally "the school for studying the Way." This book is a collection of Kano's essential teachings, selected and compiled from his wealth of writings and lectures spanning a period of fifty-one years. Throughout his life, Kano emphasized the importance of understanding the correct meaning of judo and putting it into practice. According to its founder, judo is the way by which we make the best use of our mental and physical energy - by using that energy for the good of society. According to this definition, judo, which once would have been a martial art - a fighting skill used to defend against an attack - became a richer, more complex and universal art, which in turn, evolved into a principle that can be applied to all aspects of human life.
