Writings from the Founder of Judo

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.

With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an effective tool for mastering this ancient martial art. The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few. Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this martial arts book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These techniques teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu—how to tie people up without using any knots. Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense). Learn specific techniques such as: The use of hands Throwing an opponent Attacking vital points with strikes and kicks The use of weapons (like the staff). Designed as a training manual, this fascinating Jiujitsu book also serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.
