Mastering Judo Book by Masao Takahashi

Immerse yourself in the art and sport of judo like never before in Mastering Judo. Gain a rich understanding of the philosophy, history, and practices that distinguish judo from other martial arts. Become more proficient in the techniques, tactics, and training necessary to rise through the ranks.

Mastering Judo will add to your appreciation of the principles that distinguish the art in formal exercises (kata) and to your toughness and spontaneity in both freestyle fighting (randori) and competitive matches (shiai). Firmer grounding in the roots and wisdom of traditional judo practices will enhance your ability to use your body and your mind to the ultimate advantage when facing an opponent. Written by the Takahashi family, with more than 200 years of experience teaching, coaching, and competing in judo throughout the world, this resource crosses both generation and national boundaries in its approach and application. About the Author Masao Takahashi, the family patriarch, has been involved in judo for 65 years, during which time he has taught and coached numerous national and international champions through the Takahashi Martial Arts School. Established in Ontario, Canada, in 1969, this family-run training school is recognized as one of North America's most successful dojos, offering courses in judo, karate, jiu-jitsu, aikido, and kendo. Masao is an 8th-dan black belt and was decorated by the emperor of Japan in 2002 with the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Gold Rays with Rosette in recognition of his exceptional service to elevating the status of Japanese Canadians through his lifelong commitment to the promotion and development of the sport of judo. He was inducted into the Judo Canada Hall of Fame in 1998.
