Description

Judo is best known as an Olympic combat sport whose highlights are spectacular throws, sometimes followed by devastating armbars or strangulations on the ground. But this is only one aspect of judo. Judo is also a system of self-defense, a system of physical education, and a philosophy. This book explores some of the different aspects of "the way of gentleness", including its history, purpose, technical foundations, and cultural context.
