The Secrets of Judo: A Text for Instructors and Students
The Secrets of Judo is a revealing Japanese martial arts manual that focuses primarily on the scientific principles at work in judo.
It offers clear-cut explanations of the numerous techniques involved in throwing and grappling. In addition to the precise detailing of judo's physical aspects, this book provides insights into the psychological factors related to judo's underlying philosophy.
The Secrets of Judo, a fascinating and valuable work since its original publication in 1959, sets out a comprehensive course to achieve maximum efficient use of mental and physical energy that remains as vital and fresh as when first recommended by Risei Kano, president of the Kodokan, on its original publication.
