Acknowledgements

I wish to thank Marie-Claire, Marc and Nathalie for their support and input
regarding this project.

To my former teachers, instructors, students and judoka colleagues, a special
thank you for your friendship and your precious advice over the years. I want to
signal my cordial appreciation to those involved with the photographic sessions
and the editing, in particular: John Huntley of the Aberdeen Judo Academy, as
well as Corinne Critchlow, Nathalie Dupuis-Désormeaux and Marie-Claire
Dupuis.

Without such friends, I would not have grasped the true dimensions of judo.

My appreciation is also extended to Sensei Naoki Murata of the Kodokan Institute
for permitting access to the judo archives and to Bob Willingham for the use of
his international shiai photos.

INTRODUCTION – TOKUI-WAZA

Ron Désormeaux first book ‘The Discovery of Judo’ was a treatise on the beginnings of
judo derived from the styles of jujutsu of various schools (ryu) to present-day judo with
photos from the 2006 Judo Canada National Kata Championships and the Kodokan 2006
Summer Kata Course. Tokui-Waza is an extension of The Discovery of Judo, but more
importantly, it outlines a judoka’s path to development of a tokui-waza or favorite
technique. For t
hose familiar with famous past judoka such as Shiro Saigo, Kyuzo
Mifune and more recently Yasuhiro Yamashita or Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki, the mere
mention of their name brings to mind their tokui-waza performed at the highest level!

Tokui-Waza begins with the evolution of the gokyo-no-waza as judo spread throughout
the world. In Europe especially, we find judoka applying Greco-Roman and Russian
Sambo techniques - un-orthodox gripping and modifications to the standard gokyo-no-
waza. The gokyo has evolved but its essence remains.

The main content of this book covers various applications of a number of select tokui-
waza,
followed by training recommendations and suggested training sessions to assist one
in the acquisition of their own tokui-waza. Also covered are situations of Sen or Go, Go-
no-Sen, and Sen-no-Sen. The book concludes with auto-evaluation and bio-mechanical
dimensions.

Ron covers a lot of material in 100 pages, material that is pertinent to all judoka but, as
indicated in its conclusion, will prove invaluable to the contest-oriented judoka. Working
hand in hand with a competent instructor a judoka will discover new approaches to waza
application.

I highly recommend this book!

Preface

Judo has been a way of life for me for over 50 years. In my early apprenticeship and
competitive days, I practiced hard and tried to absorb all the good counsel received from
my peers and teachers.

Having become a teacher and a coach, I was blessed with more time to analyze and
reflect upon the many judo techniques and their principles. This book is the fruit of my
reflection and research and I wish to share it with others who may have an interest in
pursuing the study of judo.

Have a pleasant reading.

Ronald Désormeaux, 2007
