2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing for the price 29 Dec 2012
By Mr. E. Selous VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I have been coaching Judo to children and adults for a number of years, and am always on the look out for books with activities and games to break-up and add some fun to lessons. I saw this book on Amazon, and instantly bought it, as there are practically no similar books on the market.

When it arrived I was initially quite disappointed. I am aware that many limited-interest books are quite expensive as they are made in small runs, however the quality of the printing and the overall design and layout of the book are very cheap indeed.

The disappointment continued upon opening the book itself. The book is divided into the following chapters:

Team Games
Reaction Games
Running Games
Catch Games
Ball Games
Judo Specific Games
Other Games
Animal Walks

A majority of the games are 'tag' and variations on 'tag' or 'bulldogs', and the 'Judo Specific Games' chapter is probably the smallest chapter in the book, which is ironic considering the title of the book! I wouldn't personally, for example, consider 'piggy in the middle' to be a Judo Game, or to have a great deal of relevance for the sport.

The stick-human diagrams are also so convoluted and unclear that they require their own key at the start of the book.

Although there are some good ideas for the new coach, and I daresay one or two for the seasoned coach, I have yet to use anything from the book in a class that I didn't already know or use. If the book was 5.99 I would recommend that its worth having in your collection, but at near enough 13, you won't get your moneys-worth.

I did not find all the games useful, but did find enough games to allow kids to have fun in class. A good book.
