Judo is the modern form of the ancient Japanese martial art, jujitsu. This classic work on the sport, long unavailable, is still a timely and valuable read. A product of over 20 years of research, Judo Training Methods is an "encyclopedia of judo" covering not only various techniques and training methods, but also dojo etiquette, tournament rules, and promotion requirements.

About the author (1999)

Takahiko Ishikawa was twice the All-Japan judo champion and a judo instructor in the rigorous Tokyo Metropolitan Police training program. He was a pioneer in the field of progressive weight training methods as an adjunct to martial arts training.

Donn Draeger was an internationally recognized authority on the martial arts of Asia and the author of many books on the subject, including Tuttle's six-volume Practical Karate series and, as co-author, Tuttle's Judo: Formal Techniques, which has sold TK copies since it was issued in paperback in 1990. A pioneer Westerner in the practice of Japanese martial arts, he was the first non-Japanese to compete in the All-Japan High-Rank Holders' Judo Tournament at the Kodokan.
