From the Author
"Judo is not merely a martial art but rather the basic principle of human behavior. When that basic principle is applied to defense against attack or applied as physical education in randori at the dojo, these are applications of that principle in judo, but are only one aspect of judoit is wrong to assume judo ends in the dojo."
"Judo is not what many people believe it to be; that is to say, judo is more than a fighting art practiced at the dojo. The basic meaning of judo is quite different, and is universal and profound." Jigoro Kano --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
