Overview

KODOKAN JUDO ATEMI WAZA (English) by JOSE A CARACENA

When Shihan Jigoro Kano developed his new method of jujutsu, Kodokan Judo, he established three major technical groups: nage waza, katame waza and atemi waza. It has been more than 130 years since the founding of Judo and both, techniques and goals have evolved in different ways. Nowadays, judo is practiced mainly as a sport competition, giving priority to nage waza and katame waza, while atemi waza and the study of vital points (kyusho) are hardly practiced. After many years of researching, compiling and translating old writings with Jigoro Kano's opinion about atemi and self-defense, we have performed this study of the official classification of atemi and kyusho, where are included unpublished documents of the founding master of Judo. Color book.
