|JUDO meaning the 'gentle way' was created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano, as a physical, mental and moral method and practice of teaching. It is a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. With its most prominent feature embodied in its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or take an opponent to the ground, immobilize and subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke, the study and practice of Judo today exists all around the world. The philosophy and subsequent way of teaching developed for judo became the model for other modern Japanese martial arts. JUDO TO WIN is a great instructional book teaching the reader the elements of planning and techniques that go into effective practice of the art of Judo. 58 pages. 8.5 x 11.
