Introduction to Shin-Gi-Tai
Shin-Gi-Tai
, Ron Désormeaux third book in the
 Discovery of Judo
series showcases thedepth of his intimate knowledge of not only the physical and mental aspects of KodokanJudo, but delves deep into its metaphysical aspects; knowledge that is only acquired byconcentrated study and many years on the tatami. In his forward, the author states:”I underline that I am offering a synthesis of my 50 years of judo practice, observationsand analysis…”.Kano Shihan’s two maxims cover the essence of judo:
“Jita Kyoei”
(mutual prosperityfor self and others) and
“Seiryoku-Zenyo”
(maximum efficient use of energy). To thisend, this book is a journey through the training aspects of judo as learned in practicesessions in the dojo. Furthermore, it also details the application of these principles ineveryday life as experienced outside the realm of the dojo.Shin-Gi-Ti covers three distinct aspects of judo: Shin – moral and intellectual value, Gi – technical value, and Tai – corporal value. The reader will be guided through these aspectsin this book; it is best to read a chapter, reflect on what has been read, and then continueon! Much knowledge is to be gleaned from its pages!John A.
