The Way Of Judo
A Portrait of Jigoro Kano and His Students
Laddas ned direkt229
This biography shows how Kano saw judo as a vehicle not just for self-defense, but for physical, spiritual, and moral development as well. His teachings clearly emphasize his ideal of judo as a way of self-cultivation that leads to physical health, ethical behavior, and ultimately a better society. Kano was a tireless activist who promoted the practical application of judo's principles in all realms of life-in one's personal behavior, for education, in work, for economic benefit, and in both the local and international political arenas.
Kano's students were a colorful, sometimes notorious bunch, and this book reveals how several went on to become famous-or infamous-in their own right. They include a prime minister of Japan, the leader of the Communist party in China, a famous novelist, a spy, high-level military leaders, and a media mogul, among many others. The author, John Stevens, gives a fascinating account of Kano's life and times, his teachings, and his interaction with his students.
