Details virtually everything the judoka needs to know—from the art’s throws, chokes and grappling techniques to the mental preparation it takes to be a champion. Originally published in 1979, this seminal work is still considered one of the best and most comprehensive books written on the subject of judo, and it continues to provide readers with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the “gentle way.”
Hayward Nishioka is an internationally known judo master and a two-time Black Belt Hall of Famer. James R. West is a three-time Southern California Open Division Judo Champion and placed first in the 1975 AAU Sambo Championships.
