dan, which I have been privileged to preview, is unique amongst judo texts, in that it not only covers the principleconcepts of judo practice, but delves into the history and development of judo from itsformation in Japan, and as a worldwide entity, touching on expansion into Europe and withdevelopment in Canada, from the early 1900's to the present day. Along the way, Kodokan judo for most judoka has morphed from a martial art to an Olympic sport, and much of the philosophical and moral aspects relating to overall personal development have beenneglected or lost over the years.

Other mystical elements will be discarded through serious practice. With the guidance of a good sensei the judoka will embark on a long journey of discovery, . .”
I feel my own personal martial arts journey (musha shugyo) would have benefited by sucha reference over the decades that the author and I have committed to
The Journey
