Firstly this book shows great photos of the Kodokan masters at work (Kano and Mifune) it also gives detailed analysis's of each Kodokan recognised throw. The problem some people may have is that it dosent give info on non recognised Kodokan throws, (te guruma, pick up variations) and the ne waza section only shows basic holds locks and chokes without information on how to apply these techniques on a resisting opponent. But what is explained (not in much detail however) is that atemi waza(striking) IS a part of judo and can not be ignored, which unfortunatly is happening today. Also a good section on Kata and healing methods for comman injuries from Judo practice is included. All in all, a good book which every Judoka should consider!!
