Beschreibung

Originally published in 1960, the long out-of-print Canon of Judo, by Kyuzo Mifune, is considered by many to be the "bible of judo." Shortly before his death Mifune revised, corrected, and clarified much of what had been published in the original text. This new edition includes all of this valuable information as well as all of the changes the author made to the original edition. The comprehensive instructions he outlined in The Canon of Judo played a significant role in founding the International Judo Association, and helped judo become an Olympic sport in 1964. The Canon of Judo features hundreds of rare photographs of Mifune demonstrating his techniques, discusses the correct methods of bowing, ukemi, kuzushi, warm-up excercises and how to apply the techniques.

Portrait

KYUZO MIFUNE was born in 1883 in Iwate prefecture, and Mifune began practicing Judo in his junior middle-school days. He joined the Kodokan in 1903 when he came to Tokyo to attend Waseda University, and became the close disciple of Jigoro Kano, the father of Judo and founder of the Kodokan. From 1910, he was a Judo instructor at a number of universities, high schools, and junior high schools. In 1923 he acquired the rank of 7th dan, and became a Kodokan instructor. In 1945 he was awarded 10th dan at the age of sixty-two. He was not physically imposing (159 cm tall and 56 kg), but he made up for that with his persistent hard training and logical, scientific approach to Judo. After developing many new Judo techniques and variations, he came to be known as the "God of Judo." He passed away in 1965 at the age of eighty-two. At his hometown, Kuji, a Memorial Gymnasium was erected in his honor, called the Mifunejudan. FRANCOISE WHITE, received a first class degree in Japanese from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and also studied at Sophia University, Tokyo. She has a keen interest in martial arts and Japanese culture, and currently works as a translator of Japanese in London.

Pressestimmen

"The Canon of Judo provides a unique insight into judo's spirit and techniques and, with very few exceptions, the content remains as relevant today and when it was originally written, half a century ago." -Journal of Asian Martial Arts
