The Canon of Judo – Wikipedia

Judo techniques and principles are not just about throwing, there is also the lost art of grappling, including chokes and armbars, which Brazillian JiuJitsu is famous for.

In fact reliable sources say the man that taught the first Gracie came from Japan. Gracie promised not to teach his art to anyone, so out canpn respect for his juvo he did not teach his art to others. Gracie changed the name and thus the art, he called it Brazillian JiuJitsu. For those that are thinking I’m taking a swipe at the Gracie’s your dead wrong. You can teach anyone any art form and they can call it what they want. It is still up to that individual as to what they do with it.

Now as we all know, the Gracie’s have done a lot. Judo, on the other hand, is a different art form, as taught by a Grand Master at mlfune top of his game. Not only was Mifune, a great teacher but an even greater competitor. Mifune was well over 70 years old and still taking all comers on the mat. Age or rank did not matter, not even your style. He never lost a match. Some say he was never thrown. There are lots of good things I can say about this book or Kyuzo Mifune, but not as good as what others have already said.

You want to know more, read what others have said. As for this book, it is a ‘must have’ for your Judo or Martial Arts Library. It is ‘required reading’ if you plan to compete. I have my copy right next to Judo Unleashed by Neil Ohlenkamp and some pertinent information from Dr.

Rhadi Ferguson, and Jimmy Pedro. Judo people know who they are the rest of you will just have to look them up. Just think Olympics and World championships.

This book is an absolute must read; and for those serious students and practitioners, a mifube own. No matter that it is an older book with not the best photography–for grappling’s sake–the book is written by a legend, Mifune, himself.

,yuzo Doesn’t get any better than that. If one really wants a deeper understanding of grappling and martial arts in general and the specifics of Judo, then one needs to somehow procure this manual and keep it often for reference. This and the other two top Judo books need to mifund periodically taken off the shelf and studied, re-read and studied some more in between going to the mats for daily practice.


The book is great motivation for those driven intrinsically, and if one continues to study this manual, eventually new truths unfold and become apparent. This is book that one uses for a life-time, and is not for a one time read.

Uudo it; own it and keep studying it as much as you go to the mats and “play,” which should be everyday in someway or another. I just got my copy of the Canon of Judo yesterday from Amazon and spent time comparing it to the original I bought off eBay The translations and descriptions have been updated. The book reads much easier however, I still like the original better. The pages in the original are kyuzp higher quality and the pictures look much sharper.

It is a more literal translation, and of course the cover is made of judo gi material.

All in all I would still recommend getting the new version. One person found this helpful. This book is very insightgul and detail is very good. This product has been what I expected it to be and and it has been very useful for its purpose.

I am 78 now and still use it exclusively. This book was recommended to me by a martial artist who has his 8th dan in Judo. The book explains everything with pictures and words This book is good for the beginner or the expert. Juso all 30 reviews. What other items do customers buy mifun viewing this item?
