Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...an interesting window into the past of martial arts."—TheFightNerd.com

"There have been many books on judo—some highly competent, others well-written or well-illustrated, some fit for beginners, others for the advanced student. To have all these in a single volume is unusual...The Secrets of Judo...is such a book."—San Francisco Chronicle

"For the teacher or the serious student of judo who desires to know the 'why' of what he does, this book is a must."—Journal of the Association for Physical and Mental Rehabilitation
